THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE STRATEGY 2030
Ecotourism Kenya was represented during the launch of the National Wildlife Strategy 2030. The event took place at the Kenya International Conference Centre, Nairobi on Tuesday 12th June 2018. This strategy is a road map for wildlife conservation efforts in Kenya. It builds upon prior principles and policies while under the guidance of four pillars namely; Resilient Ecosystems, Engagement by all Kenyans,Evidence based decision making and Sustainability and Governance. The wildlife policy will be a multi stakeholder effort and the government encourages all Kenyans to play their various roles in ensuring that it is implemented for the sustainability of our wildlife species. You can find hard copies of the strategy at the Ecotourism Kenya’s Upperhill office.
MAASAI MARA MILITARY BASE
The reported Maasai Mara military base will not affect tourism activities in the area. The base will be located in Lemek Conservancy, Nkorinkori, Nkairowuani Plains, Narok County. This is over 60km away from the section of the Maasai Mara that hosts tourists and thus should not have any negative effect on the park or any tourism activities within. Stakeholders within the tourism industry are encouraged to reassure all guests to the conservancy and the park as a whole, that they should expect to enjoy their visit to the area as planned with no interference from the planned development. Kindly find attached the link to the letter by Lemek Conservancy communicating the same: https://ecotourismkenya.org/resource-centre/press-room/
Ecotourism Kenya would like to wish all our Muslim brothers and sisters Eid Mubarak. Our offices will be closed on Friday 15th June 2018 for the public holiday. We will re-open on Monday 18th June 2018.
