The Principal Secretary for the State Department of Wildlife Prof. Fred Segor today chaired a meeting on the partnership between the department and the National Youth Service at the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife boardroom.
Discussions at the meeting centred on how to create a wildlife corridor and dispersal area within the National Youth Service land in Kirimon, Laikipia County.
The PS appointed a technical team to come up with modalities of actualisation of the process within one month.
The team was tasked to have a joint field visit, identify other stakeholders, and come up with a structure of partnership that will win more space for wildlife and at the same time enhance revenue generation to the National Youth Service.
