We provide researchers, volunteers, and youth with hands-on learning and unique research opportunities. Our educational resources impact the local and global communities. Researchers from around the world study Ol ari's Nyiro’s diverse biological, cultural, and ecological systems. A wide range of secondary school to university students participates at the Laikipia Wilderness Centre. As a living memorial to Emanuele Pirri Gallmann, the Centre provides young people an opportunity to learn about the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship. While the Four Generations Project works with the surrounding communities to record significant knowledge and rituals, it stands to influence both Kenya's national curriculum and international ways of recording ritual.

  • The African Humanities and Biodiversity Centre hosts visiting researchers and students who are interested in conducting post-graduate studies in African humanities.
