Ewaso Lions was invited to participate in the Global March for Elephants, Rhinos and Lions in Nairobi. The event was jointly organised by Wildlife Direct and the Kenya Wildlife Service. This was the third year for the march and it was bigger than ever!
Yesalai and I took part in the event on Oct 15th, which was a 10 km march from Nairobi National Museums to KWS headquarters through Uhuru Highway, Nyayo Stadium and Lang’ata road. The walk took about 4 hours. This was my first time participating in such events.
The march was about stopping wildlife trade on elephants, rhinos and lions. The event has been happening in several cities around the world. There were good number of people who showed up (maybe about a 1,000) including KWS, Wildlife Direct, Save The Elephants, and a number of kids from different schools in Nairobi.
