Good Morning. I will be posting a Weekend Scene later, but first things first. This was passed along to me recently and it is a great opportunity to support the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.
What is MWCT about?
The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) works 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 daunting threats to their long-term survival. The fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves as they work to figure out how to benefit from their incredible natural resources while preserving them.
The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust NYC Marathon is taking place later today and one of my favorite actors, Lee Pace is participating for the first time. You may remember him in as Ned in ABC’s Pushing Daisies, as Thranduil in The Hobbit trilogies, Ronan the Accuser in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and is now on AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire. He will be out there running for a great cause. So far his fundraising page has raised $6,285. His bib number is #10635. If you want to donate, please go to www.crowdrise.com/MaasaiWildernessNYC2016/fundraiser/leepace. To know more about Maasai Wilderness Conservation please got to maasaiwilderness.org.
