For the love of flamingos

A Chinese wildlife photographer has donated Sh90 million for the conservation of the flamingo habitat in the Rift Valley.

Lou Hong, who visits Kenya twice a year to photograph the birds he refers to as his "beautiful friends," has offered the money to reverse the decline in the population of the flamingos.

Sh9 million of the fund will be used to protect the birds in the lakes in the Rift Valley, which have been dying due to insufficient food and pollution.

We have a personal contact to Lou Hong through my wife's deputy, and he has been appraised of some of our requirements for support. Maybe next year.
