Training Warriors with Grevy’s Zebra Trust

We teamed up with the Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT) team earlier in the year to train their new Warrior recruits from the Laisamis region, north of Samburu. This week-long training exercise brought together our Warriors from Westgate with ten Samburu and Rendille Warriors focusing on Grevy’s zebra monitoring in an area where they are threatened by lack of resources and hunting. The GZT Warriors learned about predators and how to mitigate conflict, and our Warrior Watch team also learnt about the behaviour and ecology of Grevy’s zebra, the conservation issues facing the species, and what is being done to address their plight. The Warriors were given the opportunity to work together in the field. This was very effective as they discussed their roles in wildlife conservation and the challenges they face. We wish the Grevy’s zebra Warriors all the very best in their work in northern Kenya.
