IFAW Amboseli work showcased at launch event in Nairobi

guests of the launch event at IFAW's exhibit in nairobi

IFAW was among key guests invited to the official launch of the Wildlife Migratory Corridors and Dispersal Areas Report in Nairobi National Park. The report was commissioned by the Government of Kenya’s Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and focuses on areas in Kenya’s north, south and coastal regions. It highlights the factors affecting land use including development, population growth, habitat loss and degradation.

This report confirms the Kenyan Government’s shared belief in the critical nature of IFAW work in Amboseli. The Kitenden Corridor, a project dating back to 2013 will soon be a community-owned wildlife conservancy for use by Amboseli elephants and other wildlife that will improve the welfare and livelihoods of its members through eco-tourism activities in the area.
