Nairobi National Park is the oldest in Kenya, created in 1946.

It is situated in the middle of a fast-growing city and faces significant threats: from land hunger,invasive species, infrastructural competition for land,as well as air, soil and water pollution and in-breeding in the wildlife populations.

Wildlife Tourism is a key pillar of the Kenyan economy and Nairobi is the "safari capital of the world".

The park's splendid diversity of highland habitats are a haven for rhinos, lions and other carnivores, sixteen species of antelope, giraffes, freshwater fish and amphibians and snakes and more species of birds that in the entire British Isles.....

To celebrate the world's biggest and most biodiverse city park on it's 75th birthday let us apply for NNP to be the latest World Heritage Site, which would serve to protect this iconic gem going into the Future.

Please join me in calling on the relevant authorities to make this strategic move for Nairobi National Park,Nairobi and Kenya and it's Tourism Industry.
