As Kenya develops and our population increases, the challenges in conservation also multiply and new ones emerge. The very fact that 60% of wildlife in Kenya lives amongst communities brings with it the now prevalent human wildlife conflict driven by the needs of communities to prosper and wildlife to survive.

Habitat loss, climate change and poaching are among the most alarming challenges faced by wildlife today. The list of species joining the endangered list grows each year. Poaching and trafficking of wildlife is now the most immediate threat to many species, whether charismatic or less known.

The fate of the world’s wildlife will soon be in the hands of the next generation. The pressing need for enhanced action to ensure the survival of wildlife in its natural habitats must be imparted from generation to generation.
