WE STRIVE TO INSPIRe THE YOUNG CONSERVATION COMMUNITY IN AFRICA.
We aim to inspire change among people to protect the environment
Our generation is on the verge where everyone has the ability to spark change no matter how small it may be. There are amazing conservation stories that do not get to see the light of day. These stories are only known among the selected few who already understand the conservation scene. Biophilic Conversations will enable the ease of access to such stories and thus inspire people to appreciate the environment we live in.
Such a platform will be able to raise awareness on conservation not only in Kenya but the entire world. Sharing conservation stories will be able to formulate the language of the conservation community where others can shape themselves in a conversational process with the power to connect.
