Nairobi National Park to be expanded

22 December 2011, 12:10

Nairobi - Capital News reports that the signing of Kenya’s first voluntary easement deal has paved way for the Nairobi National Park to be expanded by more than 100 acres.

In a bid to counter the alarming decline of Africa’s wildlife and habitat due to development and land fragmentation, John Keen, 86, and his family have protected their land which is is adjacent to Nairobi National Park, through the conveyance of an environmental easement to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).

Speaking to the media, Julius Kipng’etich, Director of Kenya Wildlife Service said that the value of their property will increase tremendously in coming years and change the fortunes of the Keen family while contributing to conservation for posterity.
