The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the County Government of Kitui in a move aimed at bolstering wildlife conservation efforts.

The agreement allows for the relocation of specific wildlife species to designated parks and reserves within the county.

Under the terms of the MoU, KWS will establish a rhino sanctuary within the Southern Conservation Area while also focusing on enhancing the conservation and effective management of integral components within the Eastern Conservation Area.

 This strategic initiative aims to safeguard endangered species and promote biodiversity in the region.

In addition to facilitating wildlife relocation, KWS will provide crucial support in law enforcement and operational activities across county game reserves.

“This holistic approach underscores the commitment to combatting human-wildlife conflict, a persistent challenge in regions like Kitui and Makueni,” said Kenya’s Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife.

Kenya cabinet secretary Alfred Mutua said partnerships with county governments were key to revitalising tourism.

He said there was a lot of untapped tourism potential in many counties and pledged to collaborate closely with local authorities to identify and develop new tourism circuits.
