As the primary co-developer and beneficiary of Project Ngulia, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) is a key stakeholder in the project, having deployed the command and control system in the Ngulia Rhino sanctuary, located in Tsavo West National Park, before it can be scaled to other National Parks in Kenya. The KWS rangers constantly offer feedback to and recommendations to improve the system’s features and functionalities.
KWS conserves and manages Kenya’s wildlife for the Kenyan people and the world. It is a state corporation that was established by an Act of Parliament (Cap 376), now repealed by WCMA (2013), with the mandate to conserve and manage wildlife in Kenya, and to enforce related laws and regulations.
KWS undertakes conservation and management of wildlife resources across all protected areas systems in collaboration with stakeholders. It is their goal to work with others to conserve, protect and sustainably manage wildlife resources. The community wildlife program of KWS in collaboration with others encourages biodiversity conservation by communities living on land essential to wildlife, such as wildlife corridors and dispersal lands outside parks and reserves.
