Leading Kenyan environmentalists, government officials, and international donors gathered in Narok yesterday for World Wildlife Day 2016. This year’s theme, “The Future of Wildlife is in Our Hands,” is particularly appropriate to Kenya, which remains a critical front in the effort to stop the global illegal trade in wildlife.
I thank the Kenya Wildlife Service, Narok county government, and all the other conservation champions here today for inviting me to participate in this great occasion. This is an extraordinary day because not only are we celebrating World Wildlife Day, but we are also celebrating Africa Environment Day and Wangari Maathai day.

In conjunction, a quarter of million Kenyans also will also benefit from targeted nutrition education. The result will be healthier and more prosperous communities across the country.
Aisha Mohammed’s son, Khamis, received a scholarship to Saudi Arabia to become an Islamic teacher, or so he said. But, after three months, Aisha had not received a phone call from him. When she finally reached him, the call did not go as she had expected. Her son sounded uneasy and not happy to hear from her.
