Bornfree Foundation   16 Dec, 2011
I understand, the 16th December, is KWS Heroes Day and I wanted, on behalf of The Born Free Foundation, to write to express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the sacrifices made by KWS personnel in the line of duty. The forces ranged against Kenya’s national and our global wildlife heritage are immense. Criminality, human encroachment, corruption and, indeed, murderous intent.

For by standing together we shall prevail and wildlife will be conserved where it belongs – in the wild. ...
