French agency sets sights on Marsabit National Park
Marsabit National Park’s problem lies in the fact that besides hosting critical wildlife, it has an endangered forest which the neighbouring people rely on for their livelihoods, water, woodfuel and timber, among others. With the completion of the Isiolo Moyale highway, the forest is likely to face enormous pressure. Preliminary studies are being conducted to determine funding needs of the Marsabit project. Hopefully the french governement will fund the project. This new fence could bring the same protection to the wildlife, the forest and the farming communities that has been achieved in the Aberdares National Park.
