My advice is to lower your expectations of any immediate action. Why? Because this is an election year in Kenya, and sporthunting is very controversial. It will greatly surprise me if there is any forward movement on this issue before December, which is when national elections are slated to be held. Also, it is not clear at this writing how deep the support is for the new draft wildlife policy.
I hope hunting opens in Kenya, but it is clear there are some real problems that will have to be solved before that can happen. For one thing, tour operators and anti-hunting NGOs hate hunting. Their opposition will have to be overcome. Then there is the problem of who hunting would help and who it would not help. At present, there is no structure in place to reward communities for allowing hunting. The major beneficiaries would be a relative handful of large landowners who happen to be white. Opening hunting without finding a way to involve average Kenyans in the benefits of that activity is a non-starter.
On the positive side of the ledger, an increase in human/animal conflicts has stirred interest in making money from problem animal control activities. And, worldwide, the benefits of sustainable use conservation are beginning to be more accepted. Kenya has lost so much of its wildlife heritage by following old protectionist precepts that the stage may be set for a new way of thinking. Let's hope so.
Get in a good safari somewhere in Africa this year!
