Marchers across the world demand justice for wildlife

October 07, 2017 | Paula Kahumbu
Today, 7 October 2017, thousands of people are gathering in more than 100 cities all over the world to show solidarity with wildlife in the Global March for Elephants, Rhinos and Lions. This year’s theme ‘Justice for All’ draws attention to the dire threat to these species as a result of international wildlife crime. In my home city Nairobi, the planning for this march has involved tens of organizations, including NGOs, local and national government agencies, universities, schools, companies, diplomatic embassies and local communities.

Burn horns, save rhinos

September 22, 2017 | Paula Kahumbu and Andrew Halliday
Today, September 22, is World Rhino Day. Rhinos were once widespread across Asia and Africa and even in Europe, where they are depicted on cave paintings. Today their situation is precarious. The world population of the northern white rhino now consists of 5 individuals. Sudan, the last surviving male, is now beyond breeding age. He and two female companions are living out their lonely final years under the care of Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.

Don’t Let Our Elephants Disappear

August 9, 2017 | Paula Kahumbu
World Elephant Day on August 12th is a both a day for global celebration of elephants and a reminder that their conservation requires a global effort. Kenya has a key role to play in ensuring the survival of these magnificent animals and World Elephant Day is also an opportunity to take stock. How have our elephants fared over the past 12 months? What are their prospects over the next year—and beyond?

Changing the Course of History for Kenya’s Wildlife

June 19, 2017 | Paula Kahumbu
On May 31st we all cheered at the inauguration of the first phase of the SGR from Mombasa to Nairobi. Now Kenyans can travel between the two largest cities quickly and cheaply. Accelerated movement of cargo and people will mean more trade, more income generation, and therefore, more jobs, and that’s good for our youthful nation.
