Nairobi - The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has announced a special recruitment of rangers in a bid to boost wildlife management in Kenya.
A statement from the KWS said the recruits will undergo training and be deployed in various conservation areas in response to the wildlife security challenges currently being experienced in the country.
“Successful candidates will undergo a mandatory basic intensive paramilitary training at the KWS Law Enforcement Academy – Manyani before posting to the field for Park and Security operations,” read part of the statement.
The recruitment will only be for National Youth Service (NYS) men and women who have completed basic training and are currently on nation building.
The exercise will be conducted by a team of KWS officers at the NYS Headquarters, Ruaraka, Nairobi from 14th up to 17th April 2014.
The exercise will be a major boost to KWS as it tries to curb cases of rhino and elephant poaching that have been happening in various parks in the country.
KWS said poaching was a challenge and not a disaster as it had being perceived by many.
