Local title’s boss launches bid to save animals after reporting from Kenya

A local title’s publisher has launched a fundraising drive for an African animal charity after being invited to Kenya to cover its work.

Rasa Dregva, who publishes Maidstone & Medway Magazine, is currently raising money for The Big Cat Sanctuary’s fundraising challenge to help protect endangered species.

It comes after Rasa visited Kenya to report on the work being undertaken at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, which plays a key role in protecting some of the world’s most endangered species.

While there, she was able to see the last two remaining Northern White Rhinos in the world.

Her time in Kenya has been covered in features for both the October and November editions of the magazine.

Rasa said: “Being the publisher of Kent’s leading lifestyle magazine MMM allows me to connect with many special people, whether it be in business, charity or individuals. I was honoured to be invited to join in The Big Cat Sanctuary’s Fundraising Challenge.

“It truly was a once in a lifetime experience, I learnt so much about Ol Pejeta Conservancy and their incredible plans to help protect endangered species, whilst being surrounded by amazing wildlife and picturesque views, it was perfectly described by one of the team members as ‘Heaven on Earth’.

“I am extremely grateful that I was able to complete the trip with such an inspiring and kind group of individuals, all of whom made the trip so memorable.

“I am determined to help raise funds for such an important cause, any donation will be greatly appreciated.”
