  • Description

    Kenya's ban on elephant hunting, imposed two years ago, will continue until the animal's survival is no longer in danger, according to the country's Minister for Tourism and Wildlife, Mr. M.J. Ogutu.

    He was speaking to hunters from the United States at a symposium organised by the Safari Club International on Thursday (29 January). He said the elephant was the most vulnerable of Kenya's big game animals because of the market for its ivory. But Mr. Ogutu said Kenya was winning the war against the big game poachers.

    The symposium is the first of its kind to be held outside the United States and is being attended by a top-level team of 35 members of the Safari Club International from the united States. Game wardens from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Ethiopia are also taking part.

    The four day symposium is primarily concerned with conservation and there will be several guest speakers. It is taking place in the Kenyatta Conference Centre in the Kenyan capital, nairobi.
