Egerton University plants over 200,000 trees in the Mau forest ecosystem

The university lies within the Mau Complex ecosystem, and for the last two decades, it has been rehabilitating the Shururu forest. Through the Faculty of Environment and Resource Development (FERD), the university together with other partners established the Mau Regional Centre of Excellence (Mau RCE) in 2011 to promote public awareness, education, and training to enhance sustainable development In 2012, the university started the ambitious project to conserve River Njoro and part of the Eastern Mau escarpment. The institution in a report on the status of rehabilitation of the Njoro River noted that they have planted more than 200,000 tree seedlings in partnership with other stakeholders despite facing challenges. Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academics, Research and Extension Prof Bernard Aduda noted that approximately 7 kilometres of Njoro River flow through Egerton University towards Njoro Township. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/environment-climate/article/2001491022/egerton-university-plants-200000-trees-in-mau-ecosystem

        Planting of trees may seem insignificant...but it actually plays a huge role in ensuring that we reclaim our planet ..this is quite encouraging..other Schools should also take part in helping plant trees to secure our environment.
