Overview - Partners
More than 70% of Kenya’s wildlife is found outside protected areas. The Kenya Wildlife Service is responsible for conserving, protecting and managing all of the country’s wildlife, inside and outside parks, reserves and stations. To fulfil its mission, KWS works in partnership with communities of many kinds—training and research institutions, tour operators, private game ranchers, county councils, government agencies and many other development partners.
Community projects help to build local investment and a sense of responsibility for the sustainable management of wildlife. Community tourism grows revenue and public awareness among the very stakeholders who are responsible for our country’s future.
