Can you imagine a whole nation of animals suffering from drought? Sadly, this is the case in Kenya, where water is sparse and animals are thirsty. Luckily, Kenyan pea farmer Patrick Killonzo Mwalua has made it his mission to bring water to animals left without water. Here are the five reasons why the internet is going crazy over Mwalua’s eco-friendly mission to save animals in drought.
Saving The Earth
Kenya has been battling drought for the past couple of years. As a result, the watering holes that animals used to gather around to drink from are now dried out. That’s why Mwalua made it his goal to save the animals, and consequently, the earth. His contribution to the animals will surely make mama earth smile.
Supporting A Good Cause
In 2017, Mwalua decided to rent a water truck to deliver water to animals in nearby Tsavo West National Park. Word got out about his mission, and animal supporters around the world fundraised $450,000 for Mwalua to buy his own water truck. Now, he runs two non-profit conservation groups: Mwalua Wildlife Trust and Tsavo Volunteers.
Teaching The Next Generation
Mwalua also visits many schools in Kenya to educate children about their environment. By teaching the next generation, he can show them how animals and humans can live in harmony. Mwalua shared that, “I decided to bring awareness to this so when they grow up they can protect their wildlife.”
Joining The Conservation Movement
One of the coolest things that Mwalua is doing to make an impact is placing concrete water pans around the Tsavo West National Park. The big, shallow pans are perfect for preventing water from leaking into the ground. Plus, animals can wade inside these mini pools of water for bath time!
Being One With Nature
Mwalua’s conservation quest allows him to be one with nature. He once shared that he found 500 buffalos anxiously awaiting his water truck to fill up their watering hole. “They started drinking water while I was standing there. They get so excited,” he said. Talk about a close encounter!
Social media response has been extremely supportive.
Munyambu Vinya showed love on Facebook, “Thank you for all you do. I plan to join you soon.”
Inuuteq Schiødt Olsen shouted out on Facebook “You guys are real life heroes.”
Hansa Patel raved on Facebook, “Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. God Bless you.”
Annasz Didi gave a round of applause on Facebook, “Wonderful man”
Michelle White fanned out on Facebook, “From the bottom of my heart, a huge Thank you!”
