The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar industry. In 2013, the Government of Kenya passed a new Wildlife Act, which promised stricter penalties for those involved in the trade, in particular ivory and rhino horn smugglers. Kenya’s tough attitude towards wildlife crime is reflected in Ol Pejeta’s anti-poaching units – who are at the front line of wildlife protection.
