I’m climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in February and running the London Marathon in April and am aiming to raise £2,000 for the Born Free Foundation!
I’ve been working for the Born Free Foundation for a few months now and I have seen first-hand the amazing work the charity does! BFF works to prevent individual animal suffering, protect threatened species and keep wildlife in the wild by reducing human-wildlife conflict.
The money I'll raise will go to two partner projects:
- The first is SeaSense in Tanzania that protects local endangered marine turtles when they hatch from their nests and have to make the dangerous journey to the sea. Without the charity, the majority of baby turtles would not make it to the sea.
- The next is a community-based programme in Kenya. Engaging communities with the local wildlife is imperative for the future of conservation. We also support infrastructure improvements, help schools develop, provide educational resources, and tackle issues such as lack of renewable energy and clean water.
Anyone that knows me will know this is so close to my heart and will know how super keen I am for the challenges and at the same time help in my own little way! Thanks in advance for any help along the way!!
