Following a rise in rhino poaching, The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, says it is more determined than ever to counter the threat from poachers in Kenya.
These incidents serve as a constant reminder of the harsh reality and rapidly escalating threat faced by rhinos. Lewa is now more than ever determined to counter these threats by increasing our security and monitoring efforts, reinforcing the important contribution that Lewa’s wildlife is making to local communities, and minimising the risk posed to the remaining rhino population.
Founded in 1995, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy spans 62,000 acres and holds 12 per cent of Kenya’s black rhino population and 20 per cent of the world’s Grevy’s zebras. The Duke of Cambridge spent part of his gap-year at the reserve and is understood to have proposed to Kate there in 2010.
