The Kenya Wildlife Trust supported 16 rangers in the Kitirua Conservancy on Olgulului group ranch, Amboseli. These community rangers man and secure the conservancy against any intruders and also expeditiously respond to distress calls in cases of human-wildlife conflicts, defusing potentially explosive human-carnivore encounters.
These rangers are part of a bigger initiative of the Big Life project and we are proud to report that earlier this year they received the best recognition possible. The Kenya Wildlife Service director, Dr. Julius Kipn’getich, visited Amboseli to meet all the stakeholders in the ecosystem. In his speech he congratulated the rangers, saying that without doubt, they were the best community rangers in Kenya. He said that the results of their work spoke for themselves, as there were no other areas in Kenya, policed by community rangers, that had so few incidents of bush meat and elephant poaching.
