Great news for rhinos in Kenya…

Fantastic news from Kenya! 📣🎉

Kenya is home to important rhino populations. However, poaching and illegal wildlife trade have posed a huge threat to these horned mammals. For over 35 years, WWF has supported rhino conservation in Kenya through the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and local partners – and thanks to this ongoing work, we’re thrilled to share that zero rhino poaching incidents were reported across Kenya in 2022. 🦏

WWF will continue to work with KWS and partners in Kenya to safeguard rhino populations and support their long-term recovery. 🙌

Today, Tim was joined by a team from Fluro Ltd for a 23-kilometre stretch of The Ridgeway. We have Fluro to thank for creating our wonderful logo & website AND for raising over £1000 for our next project!

Walking has become part of the weekly routine at Fluro. Since the first lockdown, team members have been starting work later on Friday mornings to make time for walks for their wellbeing. And they plan to continue beyond the pandemic.
