What are the challenges that we are facing:
– Shortage of resources to run Conservation events.
– A large number of Kenyans are not aware of the effects of climate change and have to keep on educating them.
– Most people who are aware of the things such as deforestation remain ignorant and don’t consider conservation as a thing of
great importance.
-90 % of trees destroyed within the capital are destroyed by humans and we have to bear the pain of planting and later on finding
some trees destroyed.
– Planting trees needs procedures such as seeking permission from authorities \ people in charge and this delays the process of restoration.
– We should raise a generation that is conscious about the importance of proper environmental management and conservation.
– We should plant as many trees as possible.
– We should include environmental classes in schools.
– We should educate and support environmental ambassadors in our society to equip them with the required knowledge to carry on their conservation work.
– We should have proper food storage so that after harvesting we don’t waste a lot of food.
– We should connect things such as sports with Conservation.
For example , sport – conservation initiative.
