Map of Kenya Wild service Kenya Wildlife service is an organization discouraging poaching and defforstation. the goverment of Kenya has deployed more rangers to protect these forests but the efforts seem not to be bearing fruits. People in my community are really destroying the Ngong Forets and the governed seems to be doing nothing about it. in about two years to come to the forest would have been finished. Some of the people in my community are hunting down the wild animals such as elephants for their tusks since they cost a lot of money. Thus tasks are exported to other countries. Lastly the goverment has arrested some people trying to escape with the tasks but this is too little. More needs to be don e if corruption stops in this organization. Read more.
