Conserving Natural Resources in Kenya

The Kenya Country Office was established in July 2009 and has been in operation for three years to date.
WWF has been involved in active conservation work in Kenya since 1962, beginning with the conservation of the Black Rhino and later (in 1973) raising money through WWF Netherlands for the purchase of private land around Lake Nakuru to allow for the enlargement of Lake Nakuru National Park for the conservation of flamingoes and create potential for the conservation of other key species. This potential was fully realized in 1987 when the park was declared the first Rhino Sanctuary in Kenya complete with an electric fence and the first 17 rhinos captured and translocated to Nakuru.

WWF Kenya Country Office (WWF-KCO) was established in July 2009 after the merging of the former Eastern African and Southern African Regional Offices into a single Eastern & Southern Africa Regional Programme Office - ESARPO, thereby establishing country offices in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.

Currently, WWF-KCO is carrying out activities in the following areas:
  1. Species
  2. Freshwater
  3. Coastal Kenya
  4. Education for Sustainable Development
  5. Strengthening civil society
  6. Nature-based events
