The Rufford Conference in Kenya was a two day meeting with the theme of “connect for nature conservation”, organised by the Rufford Foundation for its Regional Grant Recipients to share experience and knowledge and create direct communications and partnerships among themselves. It took place on 22-23rd February, 2022 At Oak Place Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya and brought together Seventeen (17) Conservationists from Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda.
This conference was a success as it enabled the Recipients to know each other, exchange contacts, share experience and knowledge, and forge partnerships. The Decision-Makers were also engaged in discussions and networking in order to link the gap between decision makers and field workers. The participants left the conference feeling encouraged, connected with like-minded and hard-to-find decision-makers, more informed, and therefore much inspired and empowered to do better job on the field.
