ケニアの広大なアンボセリ生態系内で提案されていたキテンデン自然環境保護プロジェクトの計画が本日発表されました。これが実行されると、野生生物の保護と共に、地域社会にはエコツーリズムと企業のプロジェクトを通して、そして投資家には観光開発を通して、三方面で利益をもたらすことになります。

この計画は、キテンデン回廊保全地域の実行委員会と協力した国際動物福祉基金(IFAW-www.ifaw.org)によって、アンボセリ国立公園で本日発表されました。

2013年7月、IFAWはオルグルルイ/オロララシ集団放牧地(OOGR)と覚書(MoU)を締結しましたが、その内容はOOGRのキテンデン回廊保全地域(KCCA)の1,600人の地主が16,000エーカーの土地をIFAWに5年間リースするというものでした。リースはアンボセリからキリマンジャロ山まで広がるゾウの生息地を劣化と分断から保護する最初の一歩でした。ゾウは特に雨季にタンザニア国境を横断するために何千年間もこの地域内のルートを利用してきました。

IWC65: Wheels up for the International Whaling Commission Meeting!

Having spent most of my career as a road warrior, you’d think I’d be better at the packing part.

Inevitably though, I wait til the last possible moment to pull my luggage down from the attic, consult the weather gods via iPhone for whichever destination country, and finally begin loading clothes, toiletries and IFAW literature into my bags.

Kenia: Ausbau des Kitenden-Schutzgebiets für Wildtiere

Gut ein Jahr nachdem wir mit den Landbesitzern der Olgulului/Ololarashi Group Ranch (OOGR) einen Pachtvertrag zur Sicherung eines wichtigen Elefantenkorridors unterzeichnet habe, bin ich zurück im Amboseli-Nationalpark.
