Extinction Rebellion: Save Nairobi Park
As July gets underway, so does D-day for Nairobi National Park and a deadline is set for the greater public to submit their comments for consideration before construction begins in Nairobi National Park on land reserved for indigenous people.
The Kenyan government is using theglobal pandemic as a distraction and charging relentlessly ahead with fencing off swathes of the world’s only urban nature reserve for the benefit of luxury developments. Time is ticking for the indigenous Maasai community and the wildlife who call this oasis of life home.
The proposed project by Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) will bring more harm than good to both the existing wildlife and the indigenous communities living within the park. This ancestral symbiotic community of life, untouched for millennia,is at great risk and requires a global push if future generations are to enjoy this breathtaking natural monument.
