This summer, Operation Ocelot is going on tour to save the extraordinary Dakatcha Woodland in Kenya.

Now we know what you might be thinking. Ocelots. Okay. Kenya. Hmmmm. Since when did Ocelots (which by the way go by the Latin name Leopardus pardalis) live in Kenya?

Well, the answer – we can assure you we are rather aware of – is that they do not and indeed never have lived in Kenya. However, following the huge success of Operation Ocelot’s Mission One and Mission Two – together helping save the extraordinary Laguna Grande rainforest in Caribbean Guatemala and Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest – Operation Ocelot has now been called upon to save threatened species elsewhere!

That is why Mission Three – spearheaded by WLT Patron and fearless presenter Steve Backshall – is now heading to the coastal forests of east Africa to save the precious wildlife of Kenya’s Dakatcha Woodland. This amazing forest is home to many incredible and threatened animals, like the Endangered Sokoke Scops Owl and the Clarke’s Weaver – a bird that nests nowhere else. Oh yeah, and the Golden-rumped Elephant Shrew, a rodent with a golden bum that is not really a Shrew at all, and certainly not an Elephant, but that’s another story.

So what are you waiting for? Join us and Steve Backshall this summer with Operation Ocelot Mission Three and, together, we will save the extraordinary Dakatcha Woodland!

To get involved:

* Start by measuring your school, street or any other area

* Use WLT's calculator on the World Land Trust website to work out a fundraising target

* And then raise money to save the same area of Kenya’s Dakatcha Woodland
