Kenya is among the leaders in African wildlife preservation, taking a proactive approach to surveying endangered wildlife populations, charting their movements, and cracking down on poaching and habitat destruction. But it’s also important to align economic motives with wildlife preservation, so that conservation becomes common sense. This is where eco-tourism has come to play a vital role. Learn how providing safe and responsible wildlife experiences is becoming big business.
I have 15 years’ experience training and conducting field research in eco-friendly tourism and hospitality management in Kenya. Through my work as a trainer at the Kenya Wildlife Service Training Institute, I help tour operators to incorporate principles of wildlife conservation into their operations, and ensure that Kenya’s wildlife assets—populations of elephants, giraffes, rhinoceros and other species—are maintained in good health for generations to come.
