Kenya official hails China's help in wildlife conservation

11 November 2015, 21:37

Nairobi - China's support to Kenya in wildlife conservation has immensely helped in the fight against poaching, a Kenyan official said on Tuesday.

Stephen Manegene, director of wildlife conservation in the ministry environment and natural resources, told visiting Chinese conservation delegation that the cordial relations between the two countries have made it easier to to fight against elephant and rhino poaching.

"Kenya has received a lot of support from the Chinese government and the private sector, all directed towards wildlife conservation. In the last four years, Kenya has hosted about three high-powered delegations from China to discuss how to stem trade in elephant ivory and arrest the slaughter of the animals for their trophy," Manegene said.

The director said the next step will be to develop a platform for continuous engagement with China in conservation efforts in the form of memorandum of understanding (MOU).

The delegation, under the China Africa Wildlife Ambassadors Initiative launched Monday by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), comes from IFAW media partners including JC Decaux China, iFENG.com, Beijing MTR Corporation, Shenzhen Press Group, Fulong Media and DEEP magazine.

They are in Kenya to hold discussions with government conservation officials and to witness the direct benefits of wildlife conservation.

Last week China donated 18 four-wheel drive double cabin vehicles worth over 500,000 U.S. dollars to the Kenya Wildlife Service to help combat illegal wildlife trade and poaching. The donation is part of the promises by Chinese premier Li Keqiang when he visited Kenya last year.

The Chinese Embassy in Kenya also donated anti-poaching equipment worth 20,000 dollars last year to strengthen the fight against wildlife crimes in the country.
