Waste Management Program

Waste management program

Summa support has enabled Basecamp Explorer AS to initiate a Waste Management Program in Talek, a township bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve. When the program started, there was an alarming level of litter in the township, in particular plastic. After the Waste Management Program was introduced, the amount of litter has been dramatically reduced, which has been well noted by the local community and regular visitors to the area.

The program includes a waste holding enclosure, a system to return recyclable waste, and a community communication program to increase awareness.

Arctic Sense 2021 expedition

The Summa Foundation supports the Arctic Sense expedition. Led by the Norwegian marine biologist and former Navy diver Andreas B. Heide, the expedition’s mission is to explore the polar Atlantic ecosystem, assess its current health while highlighting its vulnerability to climate change and pollution. The vessel’s crew consists of ocean explorers, researchers, and professional storytellers. Bringing untold stories from the Arctic Seas out to the public is an integral part of the expedition’s mission to strive towards impactful conversations regarding ocean wildlife and health.
