~ These articles from The Star (Nairobi) report the steps taken by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) to rescue wildlife stranded in water bodies which are turning to mud in the ongoing drought crisis.


In Lamu, KWS has implemented a plan to assist trapped hippos, ensuring that their tender hides are hydrated. In Baringo and Elgeyo Marakwet elephant calves were rescued from deep mud.


A third article explains steps being taken to provide equitable sharing of water resources from Kenya's rivers.
