HUMMINGBIRD INDIVIDUALS AWARDS - 2024

Greetings from The Millennial Environmentalists. This is an invitation for you to be part of a fundraising and restoration project dubbed "The Hummingbird Awards". As we all know, more individuals have become aware of the devastating effects of climate change and are actively taking mitigative measures to combat the same. However, their stories are not shared widely to help them network and influence more people to join the course. The Hummingbird institution Awards by T.M.E recognizes these individuals and institutions by providing a platform for them to create partnerships and make their work known to the world. The aim is to award environmentalists from all over the country with seedlings, seed balls and any other necessary support to enable them continue with the good work. The awards are open to individuals, schools, churches and organizations.

Kwansma Whitley Jedidah

My focus is on how ecosystems should be studied and protected and how technology can help ensure a greener future. The importance of environmental sustainability can have a significant impact on the fight against the climate crisis. In terms of using technology, our Gen Z spends most time on the social media platforms, given an opportunity to use it to spread the word on how we should plant more trees or have a clean up every weekend or twice in a month would go a long way as a mitigation method in our country.

Walter's Wildlife Discussions

Lake Naivasha south lake , karaghita beach, one of the Ramser site , fish breeding site and an IBA area has been facing a lot of habitat destruction by the human activities and the lake water inflax, there's a key problem to the aquatic organisms like the Crayfish, Long-tailed cormorant, Egyptian goose and the carp species of fish, the ghost nets contributing to higher negative influence because they are abandoned by the illegal fishermen. Thi is the reason why I choose this area to be my scope of concern to educate and clean the lake's environ by educating and cleaning up the waste and weigh them and recycle the bottles and burn the other waste in support from Crescent island Game sanctuary. I believe when opportunity is granted to me ..this will reach another phase of conservation
