Creating environmental ambassadors in our communities
The communities close to Singita’s reserves play a key role in helping us to achieve our conservation goals, as well as preserving the integrity of each wilderness area and its ecosystem. Ensuring that communities understand and benefit from the existence of the reserve is an important element of this relationship. Despite living in such close proximity to Grumeti, many community members have never had the opportunity to view and appreciate the wildlife that we work so tirelessly to protect.
The Environmental Education Center (EEC) was established by the Grumeti Fund in response to this great need to educate the youth from these communities and to demonstrate the critical role each individual plays in minimizing their impact on the earth’s limited resources.
