Kenya awarded Kshs 18million equipment secured to support Night Vision in protecting Kenya wildlife

A nice move as Kenya Wildlife Service has received a significant boost in its fight against poaching with a pledge of Kshs. 17.8million (US $ 210,000) towards the purchase of night vision equipment that will be used to enhance the protection of wildlife in their natural ecosystem. 

The support was made to the KWS team while attending the recently concluded 2014 Smithsonian Folk Festival – Kenya Mambo Poa in Washington DC. The night vision equipment which has high performance capability will enable the KWS rangers to “own the night” as they patrol within the perimeter of the parks thus poaching will going to be a thing of the past in Kenya destination.

The pledges were made by the Wood and Tiger Foundation Kshs 5.5million (US $ 64,000), Pegasus Foundation Kshs 3.8million (US $ 45,000), and Wild Cat Foundation through Animal Welfare Institute will provide Kshs. 8.5million (US $ 100,000) to enable Kenya  rangers monitor the anti-poaching which have been come rampant in  most of Kenya attractions sites.
