Innovative beehive fences have helped communities in Kenya to successfully protect crops from elephants.
Scientists found the hives to be a very effective barrier; elephants turned away from them in 97% of their attempted raids. Conservationists suggest that elephants’ natural fear of bees could settle ongoing conflicts. The hives’ honey also produced additional profits for farmers and protect the endangered Elephants.
OBJECTIVE 30 BEEHIVE’ FENCES
SHIMBA SUPPORT GROUP’ initiative is to build 30 Beehive’ fences in the Kwale district. The project is estimated at KES 150,000/=. The Shimba Support Group need your support to protect farmer’s field and the elephants at once.

Performance by Jim Kroft
Jim Kroft Unplugged – Journeys #2
Jim Kroft is a British musician and film maker who has lived in Berlin since 2007. His songwriting has an old fashioned root combined with a modern sensibility, and Jim presents it sometimes as a solo acoustic performer and other times with a full rock n roll band. After releasing his last album on EMI Jim became an independent musician once again after the take over by Universal. He then began his “Journeys” project in the Autumn of 2014 after he was invited to tour in Russia and China. A project with no boundaries, no barriers and no borders, “Journeys” is an exploration of the world by one man, one guitar and one camera.
First of all he has abandoned the “traditional” album and is releasing a “Journeys” EP every quarter. Each EP will be inspired and written during one of his journeys – whether through industrial China, the desert of the Sahara, or the endless open roads of America. Second he is working on a documentary on each country and continent visited. Finally he is writing accounts of his experiences and impressions in several leading online platforms. A project about the discovery of the world and the exploration of our own potential, Jim’s ethic is about working hard, self reliance and a belief that music remains the great connector.
JOURNEYS#2 started in Zanzibar early January, touring Dar Es Salam, Arusha, Diani before heading to Nairobi.
