We are very happy and proud to be sharing ‘Arabuko-Sokoke – Securing Our Future’; a short film we have made with award-winning Director Miranda Grant and production company RedEarth Fixers.
The Arabuko-Sokoke Forest is one of the most unique and beautiful forests in Africa and home to many species of plants, animals and bird species found nowhere else on earth.
But unfortunately, unrelenting threats and challenges are putting the future of the forest in severe danger. From the recent search for oil and gas to the rampant illegal logging and poaching the forest is being destroyed from within at an alarming rate.
The film, which will be shown at schools adjacent to the forest, aims to educate local children of the dangers facing the forest and inspire them to champion its future preservation.
Special thanks go to African Fund for Endangered Wildlife for funding the project.
