WWF Kenya Country Office
WWF has been involved in active conservation work in eastern and southern Africa since 1962, beginning with the purchase of land in Nakuru (Kenya) to allow for the establishment of an enlarged park to help support the conservation of the flamingos of Lake Nakuru
The first black rhino sanctuary in Kenya was set up in Lake Nakuru National Park at the height of rhino poaching in Kenya (1970s to 1980s).
Eastern and Southern Africa contains some of the world’s most unique and spectacular bio-diversity. It is home to critical places (Coastal East Africa, Africa Rift Lakes, Miombo and the Namib-Karoo) and key flagship species (Great Apes, African Elephant, African Rhinos and Marine Turtles).
