Since 1999, droughts in Kenya have doubled in frequency due to climate change.
In September 2021, Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, declared the drought situation in Kenya as a natural disaster. For three seasons, Kenya has not received a sufficient amount of rain. The lack of rain created arid conditions, killing wildlife and driving some animals to seek water and food in nearby villages.
help bring relief to wildlife
Elephant Cooperation recently teamed up with a few organizations to help with the drought situation. One solution is to add boreholes in a couple of key areas that will serve as a midpoint for wildlife as they make their way to a river or lake.
One of the key areas is between East Tsavo National Park and West Tsavo National Park. Our partner, Wildlife Works, conducted surveys in late January 2022 and was able to identify two locations within the area ideal for drilling.
