Nature Kenya joins Lamu and Tana River residents in Tana Delta restoration

Tana Delta wetlands which has been on the verge of destruction due to human encroachment, man made activities and climate change effects might now get a new face. This comes after the realisation of Tana River and Lamu county residents in conjunction with Nature Kenya that this is now affecting the weather patterns and if not dealt with might cause a catastrophe. In a bid to make things right members of this communities are now collecting indeginous seeds and replanting them around the Tana Delta and sharing the rest with the neibouring communities. Since 2021 this communities have successfully restored 85,000 ha out of their targeted 10,000 ha, which they believe will be hit soon. On his part Dr Paul Matiko, Director Nature Kenya calls the government to recognize Tana Delta wetlands Nationaly where he highlights that not recognising the wetland is the main challange. This is a commendable effort that will help in restoring the largest wetland in Kenya which translates to normal weather patterns, important sources of water for human consumption, agriculture and watering of livestock.

                  The efforts to replant indigenous seeds shows a shared commitment to combatting environmental degradation and preserving our ecosystems, this initiative will not only safeguard natural habitats but also ensure sustainable water sources for communities along the river. We need more of this!
