U.S. Partners With Kenya Wildlife Service to Protect Wildlife



The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Counterterrorism and the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice (NIJ) have partnered with the Kenya Wildlife Service to provide low cost aircraft to assist in the protection of Kenya wildlife. The purpose of this initiative is to deliver new tools to the Kenya Wildlife Service to strengthen their counter-poaching mission. This will allow the Bureau of Counterterrorism an opportunity to trial low-cost aircraft technologies and surveillance methods for law enforcement, border security and counterterrorism efforts around the world. NIJ will take the lessons learned in Kenya to apply to state, local and tribal law enforcement in the United States. The project is funded through the U.S. Department of State counter-terrorism fund.
