When you support Beads for Wildlife, you are helping to improve the lives of the people and animals of Northern Kenya. Buy yours today at zoo.org.au/shop

Each handmade Beads for Wildlife piece you purchase provides a woman in Northern Kenya with the choice of a reliable income that doesn't impact local wildlife!

Beads for Wildlife helps:

  • Provide crucial support for 900 families. One woman beadwork artisan can earn enough income to support her entire family
  • Increase the number of critically endangered Grevy's Zebras seen in the Melako area of Northern Kenya
  • Reduce the community's reliance on large numbers of livestock which reduces competion with local wildlife for natural resources
  • Families to buy school uniforms (equates to only two bracelets) which enables their children to go to school
  • Improve food security and access to health care
  • Reduce violent conflicts between tribes as men feel less pressure to steal and fight over livestock

More Beads = Less Livestock = More Wildlife
