Spend an Evening Out of Africa with 'The Kenya Boys'
GK and Richard Leakey

We are delighted to announce that our Founder and Chairman Geoffrey Kent will be joined by his childhood friend, the renowned paleoanthropologist, activist and conservationist, Dr Richard Leakey at London's prestigious Royal Geographical Society on 27th September 2016 for a special one-off event. The two friends will share stories about their extraordinary lives and - with Dr Leakey as the current Chair of the Kenya Wildlife Service - discuss the ongoing challenges facing wildlife conservation in Africa today. Tickets for this special, 'one-night' only event are £25.00 plus booking fees. Proceeds will support Friends of Conservation (FOC), formerly 'Friends of the Masai Mara' - a wildlife conservation charity co-founded by Geoffrey Kent, nearly thirty-five years ago. FOC continues to work in the greater Mara region today, offering practical support to local people with anti-poaching, education, income generation and health programmes.

FOC with Abercrombie & KentFriends of Conservation (FOC)

A&K's Founder and Chairman Geoffrey Kent was a co-founder of wildlife conservation charity Friends of Conservation (FOC) over 35 years ago, so our relationship goes back a long way. FOC's mission is to protect endangered wildlife and conserve natural habitats which are at risk of disappearing.  They operate in the 'Greater Mara' Ecosystem, Kenya, an area of some 4,000 square kilometres outside the renowned Masai Mara National Reserve - arguably one of the world's greatest natural wonders. 

There are around 10,000 people in the region where they run their conservation and community programmes, covering education, enterprise and health as well as providing support in issues such as mitigating conflict between people and animals.    As the human population grows, animals are often seen as competition for resources and therefore, for conservation to be successful, local people must benefit.

Building on a presence of nearly thirty-five years in the field, FOC are committed to remain a permanent and trusted conservation partner that responds sensibly to local issues relating to wildlife conservation and natural resource management. To achieve this, they offer practical support, aimed at improving people's livelihoods sustainably and contributing to better living conditions.
