Teaching the youth

Spinetail Safaris seeks to play an active role in the conservation of the endangered habitats and species. 10% of all proceeds from Spinetail Safari tours is contributed to the Arabuko-Sokoke Schools and Eco-Tourism Scheme (ASSETS). ASSETS is a sponsorship program that directly aids children financially so that they may attend secondary school. This is a local project around the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest and Mida Creek, which benefits the children in the local communities.

The guides also regularly assist in local environmental education programmes in schools, raising awareness about the importance of protecting the environment. As well as contributing to various scientific studies conducted in these vital areas.
