CLEARWATER - Enjoy the beauty and wildness of Kenya in a travelogue Thursday, May 18, 7 p.m., at the Clearwater Main Library, 100 N. Osceola Ave. Trip leader Betsy Clement will narrate a slide show on the Lewa Conservancy, a holistic conservation effort in northern Kenya.
The Conservancy, the first not-for-profit conservation program in East Africa, has offices in the United Kingdom and the U.S. Lewa includes 62,000 aces situated on the northern slopes of Mt. Kenya, with five diverse ecosystems for its wide variety of plants and animals. Lewa supports more than 440 species of birds and more than 61 species of mammals, some of which are highly endangered. It is home to black and white rhinoceros, giraffes and 25 percent of the world's remaining Grevy's zebra population.
Betsy and her husband, Larry, will be leading a group to the Lewa Safari Camp in May 2007.
Bring a lunch or just enjoy being an armchair traveler and learn more about the Lewa Safari Camp. For more information on this free program, call 562-4970, ext. 5284.
