A group of 10 delegates from Kenya experienced Skyrail on 2 November 2011 as part of the QUT Australian Leadership Awards Fellowship Program. Focussing on developing a community engagement strategy for climate change and fostering renewable energy in Kenya, the group initially met with Troplinks who showcased capabilities in renewable energy.

 "Far North Tropical Queensland is the ideal venue for the Kenyan delegates to see what is possible with regards to environmental sustainability" said Graham Poon, CEO Troplinks. "The group was presented to by JCU, Skyrail, Cairns Regional Council, Ergon, The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and CAFNEC during their visit. A wide range of valuable topics from climate change adaptation plans, to environmental community engagement to ecotourism via Skyrail was covered" said Mr Poon.

 "Skyrail is recognised as a leader in sustainable tourism and has received many awards for it’s achievements, holding the highest levels of ecotourism and Earth Check Certifications" said Max Shepherd, Managing Director, Skyrail. "We enjoyed hosting the delegates on the Skyrail Rainforest cableway and presented them with the key principles of sustainability and ecotourism" said Mr Shepherd.
