Forest Destruction in Kipini Lumshi at Kenya Coast

Kipini is a trustland forest and KFS along with the concerned neighbours and environmtalist are working towards making it a provisional forest to be brought under its management until such a time that the forest’s health and protection is assured by its owners. Trustland forests are owned and managed by County Councils.
See the story and pictures here

"The pictures you are about to see disturbed me. This is a trend not only in the Kipini Region but all across Kenya. And there seems to be no end in sight to this problem. A logging site discovered by our scouts and the logs left behind by the loggers. Very disturbing images like i mentioned earlier. On the plus side, we are currently in talks with the government mandated forest protection agency in the country to aid us in protection and forest management in the region!"- Wildlife Direct
