Great News Out of Kenya

The Kenya Wildlife Service reported zero rhino poaching incidents in 2020 – the first time in over 20 years – despite poaching being on the rise in many other countries. This is partly thanks to conservancies using residual funds to keep rangers employed and to a new company. Conservation advocates Sam Taylor and Pete Newland established For Rangers Adventure in 2020 to ensure rangers receive the training and equipment required to continue doing their vital jobs. The tour company donates 40% of all profits to the For Rangers charitable campaign, which currently supports the welfare and training of more than 2,500 rangers across 14 African countries. A nine-day Conservation of Kenya trip includes a visit to Borana Conservancy with the charity’s founders to learn more about Borana-Lewa, which protects 200-plus black and white rhinos.
