Celebrities play crucial roles in raising awareness about conservation threats, as high-profile individuals attract eyeballs, so it’s always great to have them engaged in conservation work and bring attention to important environmental issues, Principal Secretary in the State Department of Environment, Mr. Charles Sunkuli has noted.

The Principal Secretary made the observations when he received the patron of the Maasai Olympics games and the 800m Olympic champion and world record-holder,  Mr. David Rudisha in his office. Mr. Sunkuli noted that, the games, often give the young men and women an avenue to demonstrate their physical prowess through sporting, rather than a traditional hunt”, as well as raising awareness about the threats faced by wildlife.

For generations, Maasai warriors proved their manhood by killing a lion, but this campaign led by David Rudisha is working to swap spearing for sport. The Maasai Olympics is a year-long education program, that provides a platform to engage young men about conservation issues and save the endangered animals.
