Promoting Conservation among the Youth through Experiential Learning and Skill Impartation

The hand-on ornithology session was recently hosted by the Maasai Mara University’s Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management (School of Natural Resources, Tourism and Hospitality). It was conducted by staff of the National Museums of Kenya – Ornithology Section in collaboration with Nature Kenya.

The inter-disciplinary sessions, drew in students pursuing diverse courses in Forestry and Wildlife Management; Tourism Management; Animal Health and Production; and Environmental Studies. The students gained practical skills in bird identification, capture and release techniques among others.

These competency-based skills are vital as they mainstream knowledge on avian (wildlife) population dynamics; avian geo-spatial and temporal distribution; animal welfare and wildlife disease surveillance; avian tourism; and ecosystem health. The skill impartation among the students contribute to  achievements of the National Wildlife Strategy 20302030 National Tourism Blueprint and the a myriad of UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This event offered a platform for peer-to-peer learning among student and institutional synergies. The practical sessions also sort to nurture, empower and encouraged female students to take up Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)  related courses in line with Kenya’s Vision 2030.

Over 55 bird species were identified within the university during the practical fieldwork session including 3 species of Palearctic migrants.
