Kenya is a key, strategic country for wild animal conservation and is also of historical significance to the Born Free Foundation. This is why Born Free Kenya was established, in order to implement a number of important conservation activities within the country.
Local community support is vital to successful conservation projects in Kenya. Raising awareness and capacity-building among communities are important tools in Born Free Kenya’s efforts to keep wildlife in the wild. Local communities and the wider public are incorporated into all the work Born Free Kenya undertakes, from protecting wild animals through anti-poaching and education outreach, human-lion conflict mitigation projects, to carrying out Nairobi’s first outdoor art exhibition, Pride of Kenya, which helped to raise awareness of wildlife issues across society.
Born Free Kenya protects wild animals while working with communities and local partners to change attitudes and policies, to ensure a safe and thriving future for Kenya’s magnificent wildlife.
