Community Effort to Clean Nairobi National Park’s Mokoyeti River

Today, Focused Conservation and Friends of Nairobi National Park (FONNAP), in collaboration with the US Embassy Nairobi and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), organized a successful litter clean-up along the Mokoyeti River within Nairobi National Park. This effort saw around 55 volunteers from the US Embassy, supported by KWS Senior Warden, armed rangers, KWS guides, and FONNAP members, come together to clear plastic bags, bottles, cups, and polystyrene that had been washed into the park following recent heavy rains.

The clean-up focused on preventing the litter from being washed downstream into the park’s dams, where it can entangle birds and other wildlife, often leading to fatalities. By removing this waste, the volunteers have helped protect the park’s ecosystem and wildlife.

Nairobi National Park, a unique wildlife reserve located just outside Kenya’s bustling capital, is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. The Mokoyeti River, which runs through the park, is a vital water source for many of these species. Keeping it clean is crucial for maintaining the health and balance of this natural habitat.

Special thanks to KWS, the US Embassy Nairobi, and FONNAP for their support and participation in this important conservation effort!
