by Apr 25, 2012Wildlife News

Conservation experts from Kenya and Ethiopia yesterday converged in Nanyuki to review the national conservation and management strategy for the endangered Grevy’s zebra that expired last year.

The experts from areas inhabited by endangered Grevy’s zebra are attending the two-day workshop to develop a national action plan for the survival of the wild animal.

Workshop participants are drawn from Government, NGOs, local community, private land owners, people with an interest in Grevy’s zebra conservation and Ethiopia Wildlife Conservation Authority.

Speaking at the opening ceremony at the Sportsman’s Arms Hotel, Dr Charles Musyoki, who represented the Kenya Wildlife Service Director, Julius Kipng’etich, said the presence of delegates from Ethiopia showed the importance the two neighbouring countries attached to the process of reviewing the strategy.
