WildClass is an initiative of the Laikipia Forum and the Laikipia Association of Conservation Educators (LACE).
A consortium of conservation educators in the Laikipia Landscape wants Kenyans to know of the great resources we have here for both on-line/virtual and field trip conservation education.
Our LACE members include the Mpala Research Center/MpalaLive! The Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy, Ol Jogi Conservancy, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Northern Kenya Conservation Clubs, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Mount Kenya Trust, Loisaba Conservancy, and The William Holden Conservation Education Center.
Each of these locations offers educational materials and opportunities.
Some of the most recent examples of the services offered here include:
