The East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) has been appointed to the 20 Million Trees Advisory Group of the International Tree Foundation (ITF) campaign - 20 Million Trees for Kenya’s Forests.

 The campaign, planned in the build-up to ITF’s centenary in 2024, aims to plant 20 million trees in and around Mount Kenya and other highland forests in an attempt to conserve the country’s rivers, lakes and fresh water sources.

 The campaign also celebrates the life of ITF founder, Richard St Barbe Baker, or “St Barbe” as he was known – a visionary and tree planter. His environmental knowledge, passion and activism made him a vital force for tree planting and conservation. Chief Josiah Njonjo will also be celebrated as he was instrumental in providing assistance to St. Barbe. Chief Njonjo was the father to Charles Njonjo who was a long-serving Chairman of the East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS).

The 20 Million Trees campaign is currently under consideration by the Government of Kenya for adoption as part of its contribution to The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative. Other members of the Advisory Group are: The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Kenya Forest Service, Kenya Forestry Research Institute, The Green Belt Movement, Botanic Gardens Conservation International, Mount Kenya Environmental Conservation and International Tree Foundation.

The first Advisory Group meeting was held on 28th November 2016 and was hosted by the East Africa Wild Life Society (EAWLS).
