Kenya: A Cocktail to Save the Elephants, Rhinos

In an effort to save Kenyan elephants and Rhinos, British High Commissioner Christian Turner on Monday hosted a cocktail at his residence in Muthaiga dubbed 'Ivory and Insecurity'.

The event brought together diplomats, government agencies and the private sector in an effort to stop poaching of Ivory.

Among those present was UK Minister for Natural Resources Richard Benyon, Kengen MD Eddy Njoroge, Ministry of Environment PS Mohamed Ali, Rhino Ark's Colin Church, Netherlands ambassador to Kenya Michel Van Winden and EABL group strategy director James Pennefather.

Speaking during the event, High commissioner Christian Turner said poaching of Ivory is not just a Kenyan or African problem but an international crisis. "Let us join hands and stop this illegal trade and insecurity," he urged.
