Original text on this topic:
AfSRG members participated in a WWF-funded stakeholders workshop run by the Kenya Wildlife Service. The main objective of this important workshop was to revise the outdated Kenyan National Rhino Plan. The workshop was held at the Kenya Wildlife Service training centre at Lake Naivasha from 11 to 14 September 2000. Delegates were predominantly local stakeholders. The KWS rhino reserves, Masai Mara and private sanctuaries were well represented. The scientific officer of AfSRG gave a keynote address at the beginning of the workshop. Six AFRSG members participated in the discussions and workshop sessions. Delegates worked long into the evenings, and at the end of the meeting they produced a draft revised Kenyan rhino plan. A final version will be produced before the strategy is submitted for approval and ratification. The revised plan emphasizes efforts made to improve biological management and to increase the overall national metapopulation growth rates.
