Pentax Helping Conservation in Kenya

PENTAX is asking visitors to bring along, working binoculars that are no longer being used, which will then be refurbished and given to Nature Kenya. In exchange for old binoculars, visitors will be given a discount towards the cost of a new pair of Pentax binoculars.

“We are delighted to be able to support BirdLife International via Nature Kenya in their aim to conserve birds and their natural habitats in Eastern Africa,” says Chris Brunen, Manager Business Unit Sport Optics, PENTAX Europe Imaging Systems. “It is hoped that the binoculars will prove a useful tool to help their activities on the ground.”

The main mission of Nature Kenya - the East Africa Natural History Society – which was established in 1909, is to promote the study and conservation of the natural environment in Eastern Africa through its mission of ‘connecting nature and people’.

“The donation of working binoculars will be a tremendous help to us,” says Paul Matiku, Executive Director of Nature Kenya. "Not only will they be used by our own team across a wide range of projects but also to help equip volunteers from across the country.”

Pentax will be showcasing its full range of binoculars at the show including the recently launched heavy-duty PENTAX 9x32 DCF BC. These roof-prism binoculars (pictured) feature high-performance optics, a waterproof construction allowing fresh water rinsing and a unique ergonomic shape enabling a firm grip and enhanced holding comfort.
