For many years,the locals in Voi relied on unchecked wood harvesting and charcoal trading as a primary source of cooking and income of some households,which immensely affected forest cover in the area,especially the indeginous trees.Designed to prevent further loss of Kenyas tree and forest cover worldlife works collaborated with residents living between two national parks,the Tsavo east and west to develop Eco charcoal,a sustainable charcoal production and trade to address deforestation and environmental degradation .Reformed charcoal burners who engaged themselves in the illegal business have now changed their ways and are now campaigning for the safety of trees.inorder to avoid deforestation they only prune shrubs that regenerate and turn them into Eco charcoal.They employ a method that provides pathways and food for small animals.

        This is so commendable. I can't wait to see a substantial forest regrowth in those vast open fields of Voi.
