IFAW disburses emergency grant for Kenya’s Tsavo Parks

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

(Nairobi, Kenya – 4 June 2008) – IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare - www.ifaw.org) has announced a US$ 117,000 grant to Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) as emergency funds for the Tsavo Parks. The grant, which was made possible through IFAW donors and foundations, comes in the wake of political unrest and a consequent slump in tourism that has drastically reduced revenue earnings in the country’s top tourist destinations and handicapped Tsavo’s abilities for critical park operations such as law enforcement and human-wildlife conflict management.
