I Nkamunu, live in the community neighboring Nairobi National Park, the park was formed in the 1940s when my ancestors foresaw the fast growing development of Nairobi. To preserve wildlife and the pastrolist way of life, the gave their precious land for the sole purpose of conserving wildlife habitat.
Nairobi National Park is located in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, and lies within the Athi-Kapiti Ecosystem. This ecosystem consists of vast open plains with a large and diverse range of species such as endangered giraffes, rhinos, lions and plains zebras, baboons, over 400+ species of birds and so much more!
Today development and fencing corridors continues to threaten this ecosystem by upcoming plans for luxury hotels, eateries, and residential houses.
This proposed “development” plan would only serve the interests of the elites, both nationally and internationally, who will directly benefit from it at the expense of local communities and generations to come!
Sadly development has led to a drastic reduction of wildlife one such case is we used to have a 30,000+ wildebeest migration from the park in the 1960s, this has now been reduced to a mere 200. WE must not let this happen to other species and our ancestral lands destroyed for greed!
Any damage to the park will cause cultural and psychological damage to my community who call this place home and have very important cultural and social values attached to this land. WE love the wildlife and the whole ecosystem is a part of us!
What happens to Nairobi National Park sets a precedent to what will happen to other indigenous lands in Kenya and Africa, join us as we put a complete HALT to any destruction of nature and our lands.
We ask you all to join hands with us as we rush to court to put an end to any development in the park! All funds raised will go toward contributing to legal fees for the Nairobi National Park case.
Saving the Nairobi National Park will mean that NONE of our indigenous and nature lands are up for grabs by greedy developers. Help us stand for nature! Help us fight for Nairobi National Park.
