This Saturday night, millions of people around the world will turn off their electricity for Earth Hour and the teams based at several camps and lodges under Central African Wilderness Safaris will be joining in to show their support of environmental protection and conservation in Malawi.
Central African Wilderness Safaris (CAWS) is gearing up to host a series of activities at its various camps and lodges across Malawi, to celebrate Earth Hour taking place this Saturday, 30 March. Every year, guests and team members alike at CAWS properties across Malawi join millions of people around the world taking parte in the annual ‘switch off’.
The teams at Mvuu Camp and Lodge in Liwonde National Park, Chelinda Camp and Lodge in Nyika National Park as well as Heuglin’s Lodge in Lilongwe will shut down all lights and power from 8:30pm to 9:30pm (CAT). Guests will have the chance to enjoy a night of star-gazing out in the wilderness. The Root to Fruit team in Malawi will also join in by conducting a series of environmental awareness and conservation activities throughout the day.
Starting as a symbolic ‘lights out’ event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for championing the protection of the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature. Coordinated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and other volunteer organisations, Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people.
