Chiristmas in Kenya

Kenya is in the midst of election fever. The next ten days are public holidays here.

But not so at the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy where the interests of wildlife are paramount.
Thanks to our dedicated wardens and keepers sacrificing their own holiday, the animals will benefit from their special care all through the season.

2007 has seen great achievements at the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy.

  • More than 75 captive bred and otherwise extinct white zebras have been released and can now be seen roaming in the wilderness of the Mount Kenya forests.
  • A total of 54 needy wild animals have been treated and/or rehabilitated at the refuge of our animal orphanage.
  • Our bongo breeding program has just been graced with the 49th birth and counting….
  • The first test group of bongo for release have been identified and work to fit satellite radio transmitters is progressing well.
  • Our Cheetah breeding program is ongoing. We hope of more success in 2008.

Like a candle in the wind, we need your support to keep the flame alive.
Together we can make a difference.

Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season in the hopes that the New Year will bring all that your heart desires.

Thank you for your continued support.
