The Flamingo collection is inspired by Kenya’s alluring and charming Flamingos of Lake Nakuru.
Of the five species around the world, two are found in Kenya -the lesser and the greater Flamingos. The Deep pink color is spotted among the lesser flamingos while the greater flamingos do spot the Light pink color.
For about eight years, Lake Nakuru had missed the panoramic spectacle of the Flamingos due to rising water levels. Flamingos prefer to feed on shallow waters where they also build nests that look like mounds of mud along the lake outline. Whenever this lifestyle is threatened by rising waters, they migrate to shallower waters.
Lake Nakuru’s rising water levels has been attributed to decline in surrounding forest cover. This has led to extensive runoffs into the lake from surrounding rivers.
As a climate neutral and certified B-corporation brand, we are continuously engaging the Enda community in making intentional efforts to protect our environment. In June last year, we held the #EndaTreeRun challenge where we planted trees for everyone who went out on a run and challenged a friend to run. Thank you for joining us raise funds that we donated to Kenya Birds of prey in Nakuru county. The funds will go a long way in bird conservation efforts by Kenya birds of Prey organization
