Expansion of Nairobi National Park Corridors
The Nairobi National Park receives an extra 49,000 Acres from the Machakos area conservancies, which expands its size to 78,000 acres.
The Cabinet Secretary of Tourism and Wildlife officiated the hand over of the 49,000 acres, that will now be under the Kenya Wildlife Service care and management.
This comes through after years of human-wildlife conflict within these regions. This increases the size of the Nairobi National Park protected areas and protects the wildlife corridors.
This boosts the tourism and animal conservation efforts that are effortlessly induced in protecting both communities and wildlife.
The CS Inaugurated the taskforce on Wildlife Corridor Connectivity between Nairobi National Park and Athi-Kapiti Plains, which will be chaired by Dr. Helen Gichohi
”David Hopcraft’s family, has declared 15,000 acres of the Swara Plains Conservancy land for wildlife conservation, in Machakos County. This will also be an essential wildlife corridor, for the wildlife population in Nairobi National Park.” Balala Said
