Paula Kahumbu is special. In a good way, not in a way you talk about people who may best time designing ways from escaping Mathare Hospital. She is a environmentalist who was mentored by the best in the business; Richard Leakey. That in case you might be wondering is quite a famous Leakey who was a politician, paleoanthropologist and conservationist..
The good Paula just happens to be the executive director of the Kenya Land Conservation Trust and WildlifeDirect. She is also the chairman of the Friends of Nairobi National Park. She has been able to get her message across about the plight of our wildlife with all means at her disposal and she has been using technology. All forms of technology that could be used be they her twitter or her blog have been fair game for her to save wild game.
Someone seems to sat up and noticed. From their offices in the UK the Guardian have just named our environmental warrior in their list of top new Environmental bloggers. Its a big deals as the profile allows her to continue her vital job of saving the wild game in our country.
Congratulations Paula. Ye truly deserve the (non monetary) honour.
