“It is in the interest of the public that the incoming government advance implementation of Wildlife Management Bill to give bodies such as KWS authority to deal with poaching,” said Naikuna.

He emphasized the need for the Ministry of Education to introduce wildlife life studies in primary schools to enable pupils understand the importance of the sector in the economy.

He said that will deal with poaching at an early stage.

The most affected animals are the elephants and rhinos which are poached for their tusks. The worst incident of poaching took place last month when 12 elephants of the same family were killed for economic gain.

The Kenya Airways CEO was speaking at the launch of anti-poaching partnership with Born Free Foundation at the Nairobi National Park.
