The Watamu Marine Association (W.M.A.) was formed in September 2007 after a workshop brought marine stakeholders together to address conflicts and develop working partnerships.
In January 2016 we were honoured to have the presence of the Irish Ambassador to Kenya, Dr Vincent O’Neill, accompanied by his wife Bróna, along with the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment Prof. Judi Wakhungu, at a launch in Galana, Kenya.
Our Chairman on RTE Radio with Ryan Tubridy Former Garda John A. Byrne is used to dealing with rule-breakers – but it’s very hard to control baboons and elephants!
Friends From Ireland has worked in the Galana community in Kenya since 2012 and throughout that time has been supported by the management and scouts of the Galana Wildlife Conservancy (GWC).
