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.
Temperature difference on the ground
With a special thermal camera we made some pictures of the regreened areas in Kuku. Here you can actually see that the parts covered with vegetation are much lower in temperature. Cooling down in progress!
