Project Description

Mounted Horse Patrol, Anti-Poaching, Kenya

The horses and their riders of Mount Kenya Trust will be working with the Kenya Wildlife Service to secure the areas of the National Reserve between Meru and Sirimon which have become subject to indiscriminate habitat and wildlife destruction within the high altitude zone of Mount Kenya. This project will enhance the capacity of law enforcement personnel to decrease the levels of elephant and bushmeat poaching, monitor wildlife, increase awareness and conservation education within the communities living in and around Mount Kenya, and improve the response times, intelligence gathering and information sharing for the benefit of all of Mount Kenya’s wildlife.
