Carbofuran pesticide – which is banned in the United States and the EU – is poisoning Africa's wildlife. Watch the video and take action to help ban this poison in Kenya.
Good news! Recent reports from the agricultural committee in Kenya's parliament are saying that the manufacturer of carbofuran pesticide is being told to remove the remaining pesticide from Kenya – and that an environmental committee is being set up to draft a final ban.
Support Kenya's parliament in banning carbofuran pesticide – and help protect Africa's majestic, wild lions »
Over the past six years, 62 lions have been killed by poison. In 2004, 187 vultures died after feasting on a carcass that had been laced with furadan on the Athi-Kapiti plains adjoining the Nairobi National Park.
While the Kenyan government has previously stopped the sale of carbofuran pesticide in the country, some members of Kenya's parliament have voiced their opposition to a ban.
Please act today. Send your message to the Minister of Tourism and Wildlife – urge Kenya to protect Africa's wildlife from this toxic pesticide »
