The main fare in one of Nairobi’s top restaurants is game meat. The restaurant is a magnet for tourists and the meat is from the animals they come to see – impala, zebra, even crocodile. It’s all perfectly legal. It is from ranched or culled meat. But in Kenya policing what is legal and what is not is a huge challenge. Poaching with snares is rife as a rapidly rising human population short of land seeks new sources of food. This Earth Report examines if wildlife can pay its way. And asks how the ranching of game animals can be put on a profitable and sustainable footing.
