Prolific Tourism, Wildlife, and National Heritage Cabinet Secretary Hon Penina Malonza on Friday cruised three counties. Nairobi giraffe center opened refurbished infrastructure, meeting of northern range land trust n unifies at lewa conservancy in Meru County and later opened community Banda Lodge for Nasuula Conservancy in Isiolo County
The CS was honored to be part of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife’s 40th Anniversary celebrations at Giraffe Centre.
Penina Launched Nasuulu Tourism Banda at Nasuulu Community Conservancy in Isiolo County.
The Conservancy was established and is owned by four communities; Turkana, Samburu, Borana, and Somali in a move to escalate the bottom-up module.
The center has not only been a symbolic and iconic wildlife sanctuary – offering a safe space for the endangered Rothschild giraffe – but also one of the excellent ecotourism sites in promoting wildlife-based tourism and conservation education.
The diminishing space for conservation remains an impediment to sustainable conservation and management of our wildlife.
“I, therefore commend AFEW for improving its infrastructure to make the center more responsive to conservation and customer needs”
The Kenya Kwanza government takes conservation seriously because wildlife conservation supports local people and is a good model of how the bottom-up approach can be anchored in the country’s development agenda.
My ministry will continue to partner and collaborate with AFEW to ensure that we all achieve our conservation goals.
