Thousands of seedlings plantedApril 26, 2016
The expansion of the Amu tree nursery is a crucial development in sustaining this valued ecosystem which is under threat from cattle grazing. During extended periods of drought external nomadic pastoralists move into the Lamu district in search of grazing and water for their cattle using up precious resources for the indigenous people.
The number of indigenous cattle within Lamu District is approximately 5,000, but immigrant cattle can reach over 50,000.
Through holistic ranching and with the introduction of 10,000 seedlings, we are actively working towards regenerating plants on bare ground, making existing grasslands healthier and more productive, whilst promoting awareness and knowledge for future years.
