World Wide Fund for Nature Kenya (WWF Kenya)
WWF Kenya is an affiliate to World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the world’s largest and most experienced independent organization dedicated to the conservation of the Earth’s natural environment. WWF has presence in more than 100 countries across the world that contributes towards providing an enabling environment for the achievement of sustainable
natural resource management.
In Kenya WWF was founded in 1961 and commenced its operation in 1962 with an initial focus on wildlife conservation. Our focus then was to protect threatened species such as the Black Rhino and African Elephant in the Lake Nakuru and the Tsavo National Parks respectively. WWF Kenya has however, since expanded its mandate to encompass management of scarce water resources, conservation of disappearing forests, climate and energy work, management of marine resources and governance programmes, among others.See more
