Recognizing Kenya's bid to preserve flamingoes

The International Union for Conservation’s “Red List” of endangered species is famous around the world. Now, the group plans to complement it with a “Green List” that highlights positive work in protected areas that is helping recover lost biodiversity. Starting in November this year, the first places will be up on the list. Kenya’s Lake Bogoria nature reserve is hoping to be among them. It’s home to Africa’s largest flamingo population. Ranger William Kimosop and his team are helping to monitor the lake’s water quality in order to protect the dwindling number of birds. They are also setting up a safe corridor for the Kudu, a rare antelope. The park helps create jobs and raise awareness about the devastating consequences of poaching.
