The CS for the Ministry of Tourism has sent out a warm welcome to the visitors coming into the country for the Wildlife Scientific Conference 2023, starting from the 26th to the 28th September 2023, at the Lake Naivasha Resort, Nakuru County.

This is the first event of its kind in the country, an event that will be running under the theme of the use of wildlife science to enhance biodiversity conservation and improve livelihoods of communities. The Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife and the Wildlife Research and Training Institute has urged Kenyans to be a part of this extraordinary gathering of wildlife enthusiasts, scientists, policymakers, and conservationists.

 This will be an incredible chance to be a part of the conversation on shaping the future of wildlife conservation and sustainable tourism.

The conference is an event that aims to bridge the gap between science and policy to create a harmonious future for wildlife and livelihoods. The Wildlife Research and Training Institute continues to emphasize the importance of community involvement.

One of the sub-themes that the conference will delve on is the human-wildlife co-existence in human dominated landscapes. The first ever of its kinds, this event it’s not just a conference but also a commitment to a sustainable future. Kenya is a globally respected voice of wildlife, evidently clear in the country’s fight to restore the population of endangered wildlife such as Rhinos, the Rothschild’s Giraffe and the Grevy’s Zebra. 

The country is also heavily dependent on Tourism as a major economic activity. Nairobi is home to the only National Park within the city and the country is globally known as a cradle of humanity
