BENEFITING: Maasai Wilderness Conservation
ZYNGA.org wrote -
The Words With Friends Celebrity Challenge is defintely going to be loads of fun but, more importantly, I want to make sure my team raises a crazy amount of money for Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT). The MWCT cause is so unique and important. They work to protect the legendary ecosystems and astounding biodiversity of East Africa through conservation that directly benefits local Maasai communities.
The world increasingly relies on many traditional communities like the Maasai to protect the ecological treasures that exist within the land that they own. But the incredible wilderness and wildlife of Africa's grasslands and the famous culture of the Maasai people both face threats to their long-term survival. We need to work with and support both of them to ensure their preservation.
That's what MWCT is all about...linking professional conservationists and the young Maasai leaders to show that the Maasai community can thrive, not just survive, by managing their ecosystem wisely. Cool right.
