Justdiggit believes it is time to share positive and hopeful insights when it comes to climate change. People must be aware that we can restore ecosystems and that solutions exist.
Premiere action documentary Follow The Wind
A mission that took Kiteboarder Jerrie van de Kop, Eyeforce , Red Bull, Merrell and Justdiggit from the tropical island of Zanzibar to the snowy peaks of the Kilimanjaro! Here you see the documentary ‘Follow the Wind‘ which was released on Red Bull TV today.
Follow The Wind is a project in which kiteboarder Jerrie van de Kop follows the wind cycle between the warm waters of the Indian ocean and the snowy peaks of the Kilimanjaro. He will traverse between the island of Zanzibar and the Kilimanjaro using the wind as his only power source. With this project Jerrie is trying to raise awareness for the ecological threats to this region, and the planet in general.
Starring Jerrie van de Kop – Kiteboarding
Presented by Merrell & Red Bull TV

Blog: ‘Maasai women doing business’
Another short update from the field written by our hydrologist Merel. In the blog she tells you about the great meeting she had with the women of the grass seed bank at Moilo. “The idea was that we would help the Maasai women with the business case of the grass seed bank. We wanted to guide them step-by-step towards the conclusion that it would be very good for their income to expand the grass seed bank. But they were already so convinced by their first successes, that they were already planning to double the size of the grass seed bank on their own initiative!”

Two years of exclosures in Amboseli
Unbelievable what two years of so-called exclosures can do! We’ve visited the Daraja la Mbao exclosure (Parks Canada Plot) in January 2015 and recently in May 2017, the trees have grown a couple of meter and the difference before the exclosures is enormously.
