Recordings Preserve Stories on African Wildlife

By Julia Taylor / August 3, 2012

Paula Kahumbu has created a project whose aim is to preserve the lore and wisdom of community elders in Africa regarding the local wildlife. To this end, she and her team are in the process of creating over 50 recordings and/or videos of elders relating their stories. Kahumbu, a noted Kenyan environmentalist, created this as her project in Landmark Education’s self-expression and leadership programme. The prx website shows many of these wild African stories.

Paula, great work. I’d love to be in touch with you. I’m starting SELP in Toronto, Canada and want to do something to help the African endangered species. Can we talk? Skype is marniandrews.
Thanks and be well, Marni
