A Rocha Kenya, More Than Birds

Dr. Bob Sluka, Director of Marine Research A Rocha

 

This is the last post on A Rocha Kenya, at least for a while. As you can see, I was very touched by this organization and its efforts to blend together their Christian world view, views on conservation efforts and their calling to help the poor. I think it is because these three things are very similar to what I am all about. The video below is a very simple promo piece I did for my friend Dr. Bob Sluka to use as an introduction to A Rocha for his audience. It is not fancy, it is not overly emotional. It is simple, direct and to the point. Frankly, I was frustrated by my lack of underwater imagery of Watamu Marine Park. The marine park is where A Rocha Kenya has started it’s marine program. But I was saved by Benjo!  A hearty thank you goes out to Benjamin “Benjo” Cowburn for the use of some of his underwater images in this piece. Benjo is the on-site marine biologist working for A Rocha Kenya (He also writes a fun blog called “Benjo in Kenya“. Check it out!)

Marine research is new for A Rocha as an organization and Bob has been the driving force behind it. He is passionate about these same three points and sees A Rocha as outlet for expressing these with integrity. One thing I was impressed by was I never felt Bob, Benjo or anyone at A Rocha was preachy. Not about their faith, nor about the environmental or conservation issues. They know they have to live it out – walk the walk, rather than just talk it. I hope I captured this over these past three posts.

    • Really? The one of Bob at the top of the post – or do you mean the one of the girl with her elbows on the desk in the video. Because I know you said you like that one.
