‘We must fight for our animals’: Kenyans demand to end trade in endangered animal products

Thousands of Kenyans took to Nairobi’s streets to demand greater measures be taken to protect wildlife and to curtail the trade in ivory and other animal products.

According to Cabinet Secretary for Tourism, Najib Balala, the march was organised to campaign for the proposals that Kenya aims to put forward during the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) meeting in Sri Lanka in May.

Speaking during the march, Balala said that top priorities at the meeting will be to seek to end trade in ivory and to regulate trade in giraffe products.
