Kenya to increase number of wildlife crime prosecutors to win the battle against poaching

Kenya to increase number of wildlife crime prosecutors to win the battle against poaching


Kenya has announced plans significantly to increase the number of specialist prosecutors its wildlife service can call on to go after poachers in court. 

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) currently has two prosecutors covering the whole country, where poaching and trafficking of elephant ivory and rhino horn has increased with rising Asian demand. 

That number could jump to as many as 14, after conservation organisation Space for Giants worked with Kenya’s national prosecution service to identify potential new recruits, and train them up. Space for Giants’ patron is Evgeny Lebedev, the owner of The Independent. 

KWS’s acting director general, Julius Kimani, and Max Graham, CEO of Space for Giants, have signed an agreement in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, to widen cooperation including further training and mentoring of these new prosecutors.
