NAIROBI
NATIONAL PARK

Nowhere else does wildlife roam free so close to a capital city. Lions have been shot on Nairobi’s streets and hyenas prowl abattoirs at night. But urban sprawl threatens to turn an open ecosystem into a fenced off zoo. A new highway and railroad line has nibbled away critical acres of wilderness. Concerned citizens ask if Nairobi National Park will continue to be the lungs of their city or is it now considered free land ripe for plunder? Citizen TV and AKU GSMC talk to those responsible for guarding its future.
