Tsavo: Small Steps, Big Impacts July 2007 - June 2008
Investing in a Worthy Cause
The third financial year for the Tsavo Conservation Area Project (TCAP) commenced on an exciting note for IFAW and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS). Set objectives were on course; Kenya’s economy was booming; tourist numbers and park revenues were at an all-time high; and KWS seemed poised to achieve financial self-sustenance by 2013. Unfortunately, two unrelated events pummeled the financial fortunes of the Tsavo Parks and left the country's wildlife - elephants in particular - in great peril.
