Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) rangers perform a silent drill during the passing out parade for 592 rangers at the Law Enforcement Academy Manyani in Tsavo West National Park, October 27, 2015. Kenya Wildlife Services Law Enforcement Academy conducts training programs for uniformed personnel including general security courses for staff from institutions outside the wildlife conservation fraternity especially to combat poaching, KWS officials said. Poaching has surged in the last few years across sub-Saharan Africa, where gangs kill elephants and rhinos to feed Asian demand for ivory and horns for use in folk medicines. Kenya has imposed stiffer penalties – longer jail terms and bigger fines – for wildlife poaching or trafficking, saying poaching is harming tourism, a major earner of foreign exchange.
