 In Mugie ranch, I observed wildlife with game drive. And I learned the landform, vegetation, tribes, and conservation of wildlife especially black rhinoceros. In Twala, I observed the traditional pastoralism life of Maasai and the spreading of Opuntia sp. which is the invasive species. And I learned the influence of the Opuntia on the ecosystem. In William Holden Foundation Education Center, I attended a lecture on the bio gas and reuse water. In Chimpanzee Sanctuary, I learned the actual situation of bush meat trade and poaching for getting pets. Near the Tana river, I observed vegetation and primates. And I learned the importance of cooperation among the community, government and local people in conservation of wildlife. And I also received training and practice of vegetation and primate research. I made study plan in yellow baboon and carried out it. In Mombasa, I observed the South Coast-Colobus Trust and learned the threat caused they living near human.
