Anti-poaching efforts in Kenya focus on saving animals — and people too

In recent years, Kenya has been on the front line of the war against terror. In 2013, Al-Shabaab killed 67 people in an attack on Nairobi’s upscale Westgate mall. More recently, militants stormed a northern Kenyan university, killing 148 people in the country’s worst terrorist attack in more than a decade. Terrorism experts now know the group receives at least some of its funding from the illegal wildlife trade, so stopping poachers in Kenya’s national parks is not just about saving elephants, it’s about saving people, too.
