The Kenya Wildlife Service takes elephant conservation seriously, beginning with reliable data about the size and movements of populations. We are using drone devices to track herds and recording data about migration and feeding patterns that help us identify problems early. Learn how remote sensing is improving conservation and research, and helping KWS prevent poaching and habitat destruction.
I am an experienced trainer and researcher at the Kenya Wildlife Service Training Institute, with a focus on wildlife conservation and habitat management. I have published research in the field of elephant conservation and population management, population dynamics, geographical information systems and remote sensing. I hold a Master’s Degree in Environmental Planning and Management from Kenyatta University, and have worked at KWS since 2008.
Protecting wildlife starts with understanding it, and not only the creature, but it’s migration patterns, diet, water resources, climate. The loss of a species is not an isolated loss, but indicates the deterioration of a whole system. We must protect that whole system to sustain the species.
