Chairman’s View RHINO ARK OBJECTIVES
A management policy framework is evolving What progress has been made in policy formation for fence management?
Rhino Ark seeks solutions in the Aberdare mountain range and its eco-system to: • Conserve one of Kenya’s finest indigenous forests and its total habitat. • Resolve human/wildlife conflict.
RHINO ARK IS COMMITTED TO:
• Mobilise stake holders nation-wide and internationally for initiatives to protect and conserve the habitat, promote managed use of Aberdare resources for the benefit of present and future generations. • Raise funds and other forms of support for the building and long term management of an electrified fence to encircle the Aberdare National Park and demarcated forestry areas which form the Aberdare Conservation Area. • Build mechanisms and management structures to prevent illegal exploitation of the forest habitat wherever it is threatened. In so doing all stakeholders will benefit; the rhino, bongo, indeed all flora and fauna will be secure.

This question remains at the forefront of the minds of all those who Rhino Charge, and donate to Rhino Ark . We are all realising – some quicker than others – that to build a fence and ignore its maintenance would be suicidal. But there is glamour to raising funds for a fence which we know is being built kilometre by kilometre each month. A fence that will be the longest wildlife fence in East Africa. A fence which has Colin Church resolved human-wildlife conflict for hundreds of thousands of farmers living along its perimeter, has seen farm incomes accelerate and farm land values triple for those who previously suffered huge crop losses and even lost lives to marauding wildlife. A fence which has stopped forest land excisions and dramatically reduced illegal logging and bush meat poaching. There is equal glamour in knowing that Rhino Ark’s conservation initiative is showing the way forward for mountain forest ecosystem management on a national scale. Indeed ecosystem management of all types is at the forefront of Rhino Ark’s mission. At the moment we focus on the Aberdares and have done so for 19 years. First we must ensure that a management structure to run both the fence’s constant maintenance needs and to secure full ecosystem integrity is legally established. So what of the progress toward this? Since the launch of Rhino Ark’s Strategic Assessment Evaluation in February this year, Kenya Wildlife Service and Kenya Forest Service have joined in the planning process. Much work has been done to formulate a policy. Its focal point will be the structure of what could be called a Trust. Such a body’s board would include those who have led the ecosystem management process with fence construction - Rhino Ark, have centre stage jurisdiction for its management on the part of the Government – Kenya Wildlife Service and Kenya Forest Service; together with those who live along its boundaries as its guardians – the forest and national park edge farmers. Each of these four to have representation on the management board. Such a framework will enable autonomy for the entity. The entity would have its own bank account. Funds for fence line materials supply, for paying wages, training, fuel, communications and flora fauna management programmes can be channeled to it via both external sources – bi-lateral donors - as well as from the Kenya Government through its lead agencies. This is the outline of the plan so far. Once final it will need to be ratified by the lead agencies boards and made a legal entity by government gazettement. It is at that stage that Rhino Ark can look towards new ventures. Ideas for ‘what next’ can be researched over the next 12 months so that by 2009 we can see the Aberdares Fence ‘Trust’ in place and consider a new venture to take on. Bongo Receives UNDP support On Page 17, we bring our readers details of new funding from UNDP (Small Grants Programme), for one of Aberdares’ (and Mt Kenya’s) most endangered rare species – the mountain bongo. Rhino Ark has demonstrated through its bongo support efforts that by creating a proactive management process for an entire ecosystem, inter departmental rivalries become irrelevant and counterproductive. Ecosystem resources can only work if treated in a holistic framework. Forest boundary communities are responding and have played a major role in the bongo surveillance programme. Management of the Aberdare Conservation Area requires a creative approach by the key stakeholders. These are the forest edge communities, Rhino Ark representing the wider (national) constituency, and government agencies. All must work together to form an impregnable management process for the entire ecosystem. The investment in the Aberdare fence has and will continue to play an anchor role in this exercise.
Original distance completed by March 2007 …..Only extra Kipipiri by end 2008
In just twelve weeks Phases Seven and Eight – a distance of 58 kms – are aimed to be finished. This brings the total fence build to 347.2 kms. Phase Seven started in January this year, will be 40 kms long. Phase Eight was planned for a short section of 10.5 kms but was extended to 19.2 kms finishing at an escarpment
section in the Wanjohi valley where no fencing is needed. Two teams accelerated the build programme from June 2007 once foot survey and alignment issues were cleared on Phase Eight.
Mount Kipipiri – the final lap! The Kipipiri Extra Section needed and necessary- but only committed to by Rhino Ark three years ago - will encircle Mt Kipipiri except for a 2km wide elephant corridor to the main range. Kipipiri forest boundary is 50-55 kms long. It is the source of many streams – all joining the Turasha and Malewa rivers to flow into Lake Naivasha. It is home to a herd of elephant and is visited by others which will walk the corridor. It has great stands of
indigenous forest much wildlife and treasured plant life, has been savagely encroached by illegal loggers but now has the chance for recovery and stability.
Subject to alignment issues being resolved and the ability to have the materials to maintain two build teams working simultaneously, Kipipiri Extra Section will be finished by December 2008. At that point the fence will be complete. It will be just over 400 kms long - the distance from Nairobi to the Uganda border, from New York to Washington, from Paris to London. It will be the largest ecosystem in East Africa where humans were in conflict with wildlife and forest habitat and where all now have the chance of stability.
Fence Challenges Fence finish target by end 2008…. at risk By Colin Church Within 12 months the entire Aberdare Conservation Area totalling over 2000 sq.km will be protected by a 400 km fence – only if certain issues of alignment are resolved urgently. The entire fence building exercise has since June experienced delays due to bureaucratic issues affecting a 24.3 km sector of Phase Seven between Njabini and Mutarakwa; and the long delayed confirmation by the Kenya Forest Service of the forest boundary beacons on the Mount Kipipiri Extra Section. Actions required to resolve these issues lie with the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) As ARKive went to press some of the issues had been resolved but the build team is still working at low capacity. This means fence line completion by year end 2008 is still just possible if the issues are resolved with will and speed by KFS. The issues are not being stalled by local community concerns. In fact the communities along the Njabini/Mutarakwa section have formed a group willing to clear the fence with no cost labour. In the Kipipiri area, the communities are anxious that the fence be completed as soon as possible.
Materials for the remaining Phase Seven section are all in place and provided by direct Treasury support in the 06/07 Annual Budget and dispersed through the lead agency in fence construction, Kenya Wildlife Service. Rhino Ark continues as a major funds supplier for personnel, vehicle and fuel supplies.
most likely wrongly allocated over 50 years ago, and which should have been harvested to enable indigenous forest re planting. Such re-planting to be done by forest edge communities to re-establish the forest canopy for future generations and as a non exploitive way for forest edge farmers’ to assist in conservation.
Funds for completion of the 50-55 kms of Mt. Kipipiri Extra Section require some additional support in the Supplementary Estimates of the 07/08 Annual Budget. These are in jeopardy if the alignment issues are not resolved quickly.
Aberdare Conservation Area The Environmental Impact Assessment of 1999 sponsored by Rhino Ark/KWS recommended this and that all forest inside the ACA become an indigenous forest zone.
The Kenya Forest Act stresses that indigenous forest and its management must ensure that the hard pressed areas of water catchments, now only 2.10% of natural canopy forest cover nationally, are conserved to protect the water sources in our principal water towers – the vital indigenous forests of Mt Kenya, the Aberdares, the Mau, Mt Elgon and the Cherangani Hills being the primaries. The Aberdare Conservation Area protects indigenous forest heartland. It is the bio centre of precious flora and fauna of global value and importance. It has within it small areas of abandoned plantation,
Huge energy is still being miss-spent by forestry officials on the ground who believe that their traditional revenue base is dependent on fees from livestock grazing, deadwood collection (frequently abused) and grass cutting inside indigenous forest zones. KFS is charged with leading new thinking and direction of forest professionals to develop non indigenous forest areas for commercial timber and for farmers to grow timber as cash and livelihood assets. There should be no issues of such prime importance that this great conservation success story is delayed a minute longer.
Stop Press: Phase Seven Delayed Phase Eight Completed Between June and October this year, the completion of the final 24.3 kms of Phase Seven (total 40 kms) stalled. The stoppage has been awaiting Kenya Forest Service (KFS) clearances for the removal of cut trees on the actual alignment as well as other internal KFS related issues. The fence requires a five meter clear area either side for essential maintenance.
escarpment at the Jungili River Gorge, rather then the Chitohi Gorge. Elephant had been reported in the area of Chitohi River valley where it was to have closed up to the gorge wall.
This delay necessitated a switch of operations to Phase Eight.
Phase Eight was completed on 14 September 2007. Since then the 60 strong build teams have been reduced to one team. In mid October, it started to work on some sections of the remaining 24.3 kms of Phase Seven between Mutarakwa and Kuburu/Njabini.
Both units were engaged in June 2007 at the two ends of the section. It was planned to be only 10.5 kms long. At the request of the KFS, this section was extended to 19.2 kms to reach the
It is hoped that by end November we will be back on a two team build schedule with its capacity to complete up to 8 kms and certainly not less than 6 kms per month. Completion of Phase Seven
which should have been in September 2007 will now be March 2008. Kipipiri Extra Section This awaits – and has done so now for one year – confirmation by KFS of boundary beacons. In the past this boundary line has been subject to massive abuse of indigenous tree cutting inside the forest line, charcoal burning and incursions. The policy for the fence line construction is that it will follow the forest edge and thus final boundary beacons to establish the line an essential pre-requisite. KFS has assured that this matter is being addressed. Once the boundary is marked, work can begin.

Millionaire motorcade multiplies
21 of the 59 Rhino Charge 2007 starters raised over one million shillings each! Of these, 6 cars broke the two million shilling barrier achieving some of the highest individual sums ever raised in the history of the Rhino Charge, and bringing in a combined total of ksh 25,710,963! The big six are: Car 5 McKittrick, Knight, Trundell, Porter and Hutchinson with ksh 9,275,754 – the highest single raise of any year since the Charge started. Car 5 total in all 15 Charges entered has achieved an astonishing 39,213,150.85 million! The McKittrick team now holds the overall fund raise record. Hard on Team McKittrrick’s heels was Car 22, the indomitable husband and wife pair – Mike and Sarah Higgins in their tame, no frills street car the Lada Niva 1800 cc with ksh 5,260,577. Their total fund raise over the past 15 Charges is ksh 35,343,009.19 million. But these veterans – McKittrick winning the Victor Ludorum for the 7th time; and the Higgins ending up in an accident which found Mike in Nairobi Hospital well before the Charge finished, are being chased by younger blood for the fund total accolades. The Hog Chargers – those school kids who raise funds for Car 35 (Tilbury – Hog Charge organiser per excellence) broke through the Ksh 3.1 million shilling barrier this year, closely followed by Car 39 of Ben Woodhams – maker of the video – Rhino Charge – The Story with ksh 2.8 million; and mzee Sean Avery in Car 38 achieving ksh 2.6 million. The glamour girls in Rhino Rouge Car 17 Tanya Church, Colleen Outram, Mary Njonjo, Julie Johnstone, Helle Sejer-Hansen and Gemma Lawrence hit big time too with ksh 2.5 million. Of the nine pledges to achieve one million – all made it plus Cars 27, 30, 31, 33, 34, 47, 48, 51, 58 who doubled their ksh half million pledges. First timer German overseas entrant Andreas Henckell – a former team member of Car 56 – achieved his million though our field audit showed him ksh 2000 short – subsequently squared once currency changes had been taken into account! 32 cars raised over ksh 500,000 - more than pledged. One of these Jonathan Stitchbury’s Car 13 was just short by ksh 62 from doubling his pledge! Must have been something to do with adding up! (Car 3 – Simon Houghton and Car 32 – Jonny Havelock raised ksh 0.5 m exact.) Car 8 was also short by a few bob and have subsequently ‘made it up’ as per the pledge system demands on entrants. Car 7, 12, 36 & 43 pledged ksh 200,000 but raised more.

Vistas with blisters...Everything bent!
Rhino Charge’07 by Gavin Bennett Editor, Auto News
The Rhino charge, ever a precocious youth, came of age in 2007. It turned 19. It hit the million dollar mark in fund-raising; and it performed these rites of passage with style and gusto. The Kerio Valley was a fitting stage and backdrop – just the right mix of awesome beauty and awful brutality. “Vistas with blisters”. Heat and storms, rock and thorn, sand and bush. Plains. Cliffs. Gulleys. Mad Max machinery. Brawn and Brain. Everything got bent. A lot of stuff got broken. One person nearly died. So, the best ever, then? Probably.
On the fund-raising, there’s no need for superlatives. The $1,000,000 number speaks eloquently enough for itself. So,stop gawping; put your hand
under your chin and push upwards until your lips meet, steady your breathing, and quietly ponder that quantity. Think of it in terms of posts and wire; think of the commitment required to raise it; think of the goodwill of those who gave it. Then think of it in terms of the cause it will be spent on: the integrity of the Aberdare forest and everything that lives in it; the security of neighbouring farmers whose crops will be able to flourish in safety; the health of the water catchment on which Kenya’s capital depends. The greater assurance of all these good things – in harmony and in perpetuity. Large, eh? In sum it is much money, well spent, by both the donors and the recipients. For Rhino Chargers that is more than enough common sense for one story, so let’s move right along to the mad bit.
The 2007 Rhino Charge was held in a part of the Kerio Valley which is also beyond superlatives, even more breathtaking than that magic number, and for which there are at least a million descriptors of wonder. Just one is particularly worthy of note here: It is generally impassable to motor vehicles.
To put this final act of ranking in perspective, if someone told you he was a survivor from the Titanic, would you want to know what his cabin number was?
Rhino Chargers don’t do “generally”, or “impassable”. They drive 500 kms to get to a place where those words are used, and defy them. On arrival they pitch tents, drink beer, and pore over maps showing 13 “guard posts” dotted over an untracked wilderness of some 400 sq kms. They figure out how a crow might fly to all of them.
scald of an exploding radiator; the scything whiplash of a snapped cable; the laminated glass spears in the forehead when the car nosedives into an unseen ditch; the marks of shin upon boulder (or vice versa) and thorn upon cheek. The line between the first aid kit and medivac is sometimes very fine indeed.
The next morning, come rain or shine (and, on this occasion, both) they test that calculation for its repeatability on the ground. All of them break sweat, and also anything mechanical they take with them. All of them get cut and bruised and blistered while scouting, winching, digging, pushing, and doing things with rocks. Some of them get quite seriously injured – the searing
After ten hours of this, punctuated by elevenses (30 seconds), lunch (two minutes) and tea (sorry, we’re running late) all have “done it”. A few have “done it all,” and, in accordance with set of pre-determined and self-inflicted criteria (most guard posts visited, with a tie breaker of shortest distance covered) each is positioned, from first to last.
Nevertheless, bush computers whirr and hum, radios crackle, things like washing and eating and sleeping are attended to while the lost are found, the broken are mended, beer is drunk, stories are told round campfires, and officials calculate distances and count money. On the third day they rise again, and ascend into breakfast, speeches and prizes and pitching camp before driving 500 kms back to where they came from. Why they do this is open to some doubt. Because they do it, the world is a better place. The fund-raising achievements of the Alan McKittrick team in Car No 5 are now legend. They seem to operate on
the principal of “think of an impossible number…and double it”. This year they mustered shs 9,275,754. That brings their total contribution over the years to shs 39.2 m. Okay, you can gawp again, now. Next, yet again, were founder-funders Mike and Sarah Higgins, who brought shs 5,260,577 this year for a career tally of shs 35.3 m. “Career” really is the right word, for 18 years of charging and fund-raising at that level is no mean chunk of anyone’s life. And this year Mike gave another chunk of himself to the cause (luckily he has quite a few chunks to spare) when a winch-snap sent his Lada Niva slewing over his legs, inflicting a wound of shark-bite severity. On the sporting front, this year 13 of the 60 entrants managed to get to all the controls, and not for the first time the straightest lines were achieved by Ian Duncan who was several kilometers more direct than any other.
Rhino Ark UK News
UK Friends “Charge” Raises One Million By John Bowdem - Rhino Ark UK Trustee and event organiser The UK Rhino Charge was held at the usual location of Pippingford Park on Sep 16th, despite a late change of dates. Over £7,500 (ksh 1,012,500) was raised with more pledges to be received. With the threat of Foot and Mouth Disease in South East England all vehicles had to have their wheels disinfected on arrival. However, this did not deter the usual mixture of off-road navigation, special tasks involving this year 4x4s and ropes as expected, with also a dinghy and an access tower just to provide a bit of variation! Team AJS, Andy Sargeant, Dean Harmes, Dave Harrison and John Legg, appropriately driving a Yamaha Rhino ATV, arrived determined to improve on last year’s second place and swept the board this year winning the Rhino Charge (with 554 points), and also the Tiger Lines, raising the most sponsorship and thus winning the Victor Ludorum to boot!
This would not have been the case had the “Grizzly Rovers”, Richard Hilton, Chris Smart and partners from the South Coast Land Rover Club in a Classic Range Rover, not tried to get one more Tiger Line punch and got themselves seriously stuck. This made them run out of time and end up as nonfinishers - with an extra 10 minutes. They would have been 2nd overall and 1st in the Tiger lines. Such is life! The family team of Janet, Melanie and Mark Edwards in a husband/dad Rhino Ray Edwards prepared Suzuki Jimny came 2rd overall (with 496 points) and 2rd in the Tiger Lines showing admirable consistency and concentration throughout the day. UK Rhino Ark Chairman Guy Tritton calmed his driving style down enough to come 3rd overall in a borrowed Land Rover Series 2A after entering every UK Charge to date. Gurvir Bhabra guided his massive Land Cruiser through the trees and round the Tiger Lines to gain the Spirit of the
Event Trophy and 3rd in the Tiger Lines. Family connections were everywhere this year with Glenda Bowden and friends winning the ladies prizes and Lawrence and Melissa Bowden winning the prize for the best team of two vehicles, despite the latter also being landed with the “Where the F*** Are We” trophy for driving off without any paperwork, running out of petrol and breaking the front axle on dad John’s Jeep. Both of them required a pit crew to keep their vehicles going but battled on regardless. Clerk of the Course Brian Hartley and his team of marshals – the Red Coats, did a stirling job keeping track of the competitors as they appeared and disappeared around the estate among the beech trees, lakes and wooded valleys. And the sun shone long enough to remind everyone that a Tusker would be worth drinking at the finish! More Rhino Ark UK news on page 22

Wildlife Watch UNDP grant for Bongo project Mt Kenya, the Mau and Mt Eburu. Earlier this year the samples were tested at Cardiff University by a joint team from Nairobi University and Cardiff’s School of Biosciences. The DNA research confirmed sizeable groups of Bongo in the Aberdares and smaller isolated herds in severely threatened forests in Mt Kenya, the Mau and Mt Eburu. The UNDP funds will stabilise the programme which has relied to date on ad hoc donations from dedicated conservationists, and the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation of the USA.
A grant of USD 50,000 (ksh 3.3 million) is being provided by UNDP’s Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEFSGP) to Rhino Ark. The grant is to support Rhino Ark’s Bongo Surveillance Project initiated in the Aberdares and outreaching to Mt. Kenya and other mountain forests in which the project has identified remnant herds of wild Bongo. The Mountain Bongo (Tragelaphus eurycerus isaaci) is one of Kenya’s most rare and highly threatened forest antelopes. Following the construction of Rhino Ark’s Aberdare fence and resultant improving management methods in the Aberdares, the opportunity to establish an accurate assessment of the Aberdare Bongo herds – the most illusive of forest antelope – is now proving possible. The Bongo Surveillance Project was formed in 2003 using skilled trackers from the forest edge communities, some of whom were former trappers and even poachers of Bongo in the 1970s when the animals were in abundance and were licensed for export to foreign zoos. Commenting on the project, Colin Church, Chairman of Rhino Ark’s Management Committee said: “Under the guidance of honorary wardens, Mike Prettejohn and Peter Mwangi and in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) small teams of skilled trackers from Aberdare communities have identified stable herds of Bongo in the Aberdare mountain range from Rhino Gate in the North to the Kinangop peaks in the South. “Rhino Ark in funding partnership with African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW Giraffe Centre) facilitated for a DNA testing of dung samples of the Aberdare herds as well as those in
Commented Mr. Church: “The monitoring of Bongo in the inaccessible high forests of the Aberdares has proven that with the use of small skilled teams and the latest GPS and laser camera trap monitoring processes, other endangered wildlife such as the black rhino in which current processes have not been able to contain poaching with snares by known, well funded and organized gangs, can be reversed. These gangs have successfully outmanoeuvred the current cumbersome security umbrella systems. Forest security adjacent to high population zones requires a two pronged approach: Firstly by a greatly accelerated community sensitization and intelligence support programme; and secondly, deployment of small highly specialized, and incentivised foot patrols linked to high tech monitoring systems. Throwing large numbers of standard trained rangers at this problem will not solve it.” Mr. Church said that the Bongo programme was ‘community focussed’ enlisting people who new forest lore and who with training and leadership, had provided an essential ingredient to the Bongo project’s successes to date. This year the coveted Michael Werikhe Award for Conservation provided by the East African Wildlife Society and awarded by Rhino Ark’s Rhino Charge Committee was made to the Bongo Surveillance Project team. Commented Nancy Chege, National Co-ordinator of the GEF/Small Grants Programme: “The grant to Rhino Ark is for a two year implementation timetable”. “It is designed to mobilize community members to participate in the project as local collaborators and informers It contains clear outreach objectives for communities and school children around Bongo prevalent areas to learn more about the importance of both bongo, indeed all indigenous forest habitat and the importance of developing new forest integrity agreements with forest edge communities,” Ms. Chege concluded.
Protect Mt Eburru’s Bongo “The Community Environment Fund congratulates Rhino Ark for the confidence the development partners have in you. I am personally excited as CDTF has a project covering Eburru forest and the Bongo was one of the species that justified financial resources being injected into the Lake Naivasha Watershed Project of which Eburru is part. Congrats.” Joseph Ruhiu European Union Community Environment Fund Manager.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below: Basis of preparation The financial statements summarise the transactions of the Trust and deal with the net assets at the disposal of the trustees. The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost basis of accounting. Income recognition Donations income is recognised when the monetary value of the donations can be measured with sufficient reliability, there is reasonable assurance of receipt and conditions for receipt, if any, have been met. Investment income is recognised on accrual basis. Property and equipment Items of property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is charged on the straight line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The annual depreciation rates in use are: Motor vehicles 25.0% Furniture and fittings 12.5% Computers 33.3% Office equipment 12.5% Foreign currency transactions Transactions during the year are converted into Kenya Shillings at the rates ruling at the transaction dates. Assets and liabilities at the balance sheet date, which are expressed in foreign currencies are translated at the rates ruling at that date. The resulting differences from conversion and translation are dealt with in the income and expenditure account. Financial instruments A financial instrument is a contract that gives rise to both a financial asset of one enterprise and a financial liability of another enterprise. The financial instruments held by the Trust are investments in the money market, debtors, bank and cash balances and creditors. All the financial instruments held by the Trust are accounted for on amortised cost basis. Receivables Receivables are stated at nominal value, less provisions for any amounts considered irrecoverable. Cash an cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash at bank and in hand and short term deposits with an original maturity of three months or less. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements requires that the management makes estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates. The more significant estimation process is related to the determination of provision for doubtful debts. Although some variability is inherent in these estimates, management believes that the amounts provided are adequate.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2007 mobilization began for Phase Seven, to enable the Treasury procurement process through the Kenya Wildlife Service to fulfil its statutory requirements. All materials were finally selected and available in storage by December 2006 and the team started work in January 2007. Construction once all materials were on site thus averaged 4.07 kilometres in the weeks the work force was actually building.
Rhino Ark Chairman of Trustees Michael Karanja
A Record Year A record year for fund raising and steady progress with fence construction marked the year ended 31 March 2007. The 2006 Rhino Charge broke records raising a final audited figure of KShs 57 million. Donations from business corporations, bilateral grant supporters; and hugely boosted by the Kenya Treasury’s allocation of KShs 30 million has provided Rhino Ark in excess of KShs 109 million worth of gross funds raised and materials provided. This is a record. Fence Construction Work was completed on Phase Six by August 2006. It was commissioned at Njabini by the Minister for Finance, Hon Amos Kimunya at a fence line ceremony attended by donors, conservationists, Rhino Chargers and hundreds of farmers. Members of the KEKIKA community living on Phase Six who assisted in the construction of 26 kilometres with no labour cost for fence clearing received the Michael Werikhe Award for services to conservation from the Minister. The award is provided by the East African Wildlife Society and the selection is made by the Rhino Charge Committee. A total of 28.5 kilometres were built in the period. Of this 18 kilometres saw completion of Phase Six. In January 2007 work started on Phase Seven with 10.5 kilometres being completed and fully electrified by 31 March 2007. There was a period of 20 weeks between Phase Six completion in late August until
Funds Raised in Year Gross donations in the year were KShs 74.1 million and include Rhino Charge 2006 with KShs 51.9 million and Rhino Charge 2007 with KShs 6.9 million. Other donations included KShs 3 million from KENGEN, KShs 4 million from Safaricom Foundation, KShs 1.3 million from Carbacid Ltd, KShs 3.9 million from United States Fishing & Wildlife and KShs 0.3 million from Eden Trust. The fund raise generated by the 2006 Rhino Charge reflects the introduction of the pledge system introduced in the previous years whereby places are secured for one million shillings, five hundred thousand shillings and two hundred thousand shillings after which the Committee closes the entry list allowing for some entrants having to withdraw due to unforeseen circumstances. The 2006 Charge recorded a total of 68 starters.. The General Fund The general fund as reflected in the balance sheet has been split into two categories namely; Fence Maintenance Reserve and Fence Construction Reserve. Twenty percent of each year’s Rhino Charge donation is allocated specifically for maintenance of the fence already constructed. This is to ensure that the huge amount of effort and money put into the conservation programme does not collapse from lack of maintenance. The maintenance reserve is therefore to earmark these funds for maintenance and not used for construction. The net additions this year amounted to Ksh 8.9 million. The fence construction reserve had gone into a deficit position of Ksh 27.7 million during the year to 31st March 2006. This has improved during the current year and now the deficit has reduced to Ksh 15.1 million. We expect the deficit to be eliminated completely during the year ended 31st March 2008. Maintenance - Our Challenge Now I cannot stress enough that when fence construction is complete in 2008 only half the job in the Aberdares will be done. No
project is secured until funds for its permanent maintenance are in place. In February, the Chairman of the Management Committee presented a Strategic Evaluation of the work and achievements to date and revealed to the large audience of major donors present, an outline of a management policy which if supported by an independent source of funds would enable a Trust to manage the fence for posterity. Such a Trust to be legally constituted, have full Government support, and on which its key management agencies in the Aberdares, together with the fence line communities and Rhino Ark are fully represented. Such a policy and the funds to enable it to operate are what are needed urgently. By supporting the Aberdare fence with funds for materials, the Kenya Government has already pointed a way forward. Rhino Ark believes that on the basis of a shilling for a shilling, tax payers through Rhino Ark will by 2008 have provided KShs 600 million for fence construction. The Strategic Evaluation outlines detailed figures which foresee an endowment fund of KShs 600 million from which at a 5% drawdown, will release an annual KShs 30 million for management and maintenance under an independent body. To secure Government and bilateral donor support for KShs 600 million is our immediate objective. There are additional, wider ongoing infrastructural needs including access roads and housing which remain Government responsibilities and will need a planned investment process to continue. Only when maintenance is secured can we look towards what the Rhino Charge and indeed all those who provide us with funds could take on next. Whatever that may be, Rhino Ark remains committed to the Aberdares and will assist with all matters of environmental management of the ecosystem into the future. Many to Thank My special thanks must go to all who support this great conservation management initiative – the bi-lateral donors, the corporates and most specifically this year Safaricom Foundation, KenGen, Kenya Shell, Eden Trust, the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW), Carbacid Co2 Limited and all the Rhino Chargers without whom this entire initiative would never have gained the momentum it now has.

Rhino Ark News Maathai & Njonjo now patrons Nobel Laureate Prof Wangari Maathai has become a patron of Rhino Ark Charitable Trust. She joins the list of distinguished patrons following Mr. Charles Njonjo’s appointment in 2006. Mr. Njonjo, a former Chairman of Board of Trustees of Kenya Wildlife Service has given many years of staunch support to Rhino Ark’s activities for conservation of the Aberdares. In her acceptance statement, Professor Maathai declared: “I feel honoured to play a role in the conservation of the Aberdares forest system, a forest that plays important socio-economic and ecological roles not only for the local communities surrounding the forest, but also for the global community through reducing global warming.” Welcoming Prof. Wangari Maathai, Rhino Ark’s Chairman of Trustees Mr. Michael Karanja said, “Wangari Maathai’s commitment to the environment and her well known stand for the conservation of indigenous forest as prime water catchment and as secure habitat for all forms of flora and fauna is world renowned. Her international standing and ability to mobilize, makes her an ideal patron of Rhino Ark”.
“The task of securing indigenous forest in the Aberdares has been one of Rhino Ark’s principal objectives and it has been successful. We have been successful too in leading the way to resolving human wildlife conflict for forest edge communities. Rhino Ark is currently working with various communities on projects to re-plant old areas of damaged indigenous forest caused by illegal and uncontrolled logging,” he continued. “Rhino Ark works with willing communities to encourage nonexploitive activity inside the indigenous forest and equally to assist farmers to ‘think outward’ and to grow commercially viable trees on woodlots on their farms, thereby removing the unsustainable pressure on indigenous forest inside the fence line of the Aberdares. The Kenya Forest Act 2005 is abundantly clear that areas of mountain water catchment are to be preserved for indigenous forest,” concluded Mr. Karanja.
Rhino Ark Charitable Trust has appointed Mr. James Githui (pictured) as Fence/ Community Manager to be based in Nyeri. Mr. Githui has wide experience in wildlife conservation and human/wildlife community conflict, having served for 35 years with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and its fore- runner the Wildlife Conservation Management Department (WCMD). Since 2002, Mr Githui was responsible for developing partnerships with communities for the Aberdare Fence Project. At statutory age, he was retired from KWS with the rank of Senior Warden. In the period 2002-2007 Aberdare fence line communities have witnessed the value of the Rhino Ark fence, helped pro-
vide fence attendants to man in pairs every 8 kms of fence line completed, assisted in identifying illegal activity, participated in decision making regarding access protocols through the gates. Several communities have provided no charge labour to the value of several million shillings to assist in building the fence Mr. Githui holds a Diploma in Wildlife Management from the College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka, Tanzania and served KWS in a wide range of duties. With fence completion targeted for year end 2008, Mr. Githui will be part of the team planning the future management for the fence and its role in conserving the Aberdare ecosystem.
Treasury releases second Ksh 30m The application through KWS for a second tranche of ksh 30 million in the 06/07 Budget was approved by Parliament in May 2007. This brings the total support by Government through KWS and the Kenya Forest Service to a value of ksh 72 million over a period of three years. Since this is a provision of materials via the Treasury, this sum is not reflected in the Rhino Ark balance sheet but is recorded as a

contribution to fence construction. The funds have all been converted to fence line materials and used for fence construction on Phases Six, Seven and Eight. It complies with Rhino Ark’s appeal that every shilling Rhino Ark donors provide for the fence be matched by Government. This reflects a true public private partnership developing for the Aberdares.
Commercial Bank of Africa won the top raffle prize during this year’s Rhino Charge – two return tickets, NairobiParis – courtesy of Kenya Airways, plus accommodation for two at Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and another three days at the Hilton Arc de Triomph also in Paris.

Rhino Ark News Guard Post tenders out In September contractors were invited under public tender to bid for the construction of the five Rhino Ark Guard Posts scheduled for completion in the current financial year. The tenders are being managed by the KWS Technical Services Division. Payments to the successful bidder will be directly from Rhino Ark. Over 80% of the funds have been provided under a specific donation agreement with various donors including: Kengen, Kenya Shell Ltd, Carbacid CO2 Ltd and the Eden Trust. The balance will be topped up by Rhino Ark Maintenance budget.
The guard posts comply to the latest housing standards for KWS personnel. They comprise two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, ablution facilities, and a verandah. Where energizer houses are needed an additional room is included for this essential facility required every 20 kms along the fence line. The guard posts are to be constructed at Nandarasi River on the Naivasha road entrance to the Aberdare Conservation Area and where the KWS plan to re-locate its sub-station base; at the fence line entrance to the Carbacid CO2 mine at Kereita, and at each entrance to the Njabini/Thika Road at Kaburu and Gakoe. Isaac Awuondo (Left) a Rhino Ark Trustee receives a ‘big’ cheque of kshs 1.5 million from Kenya Shell Managing Director Patrick Obath (Right). Kenya Shell donated the funds towards the construction of a guard post along the 400km long Aberdare Fence. Each guard post contains an energizer house and fence accommodation which is a permanent, stone construction situated every 20km of the Fence. Each unit houses two fence attendants. The buildings comply to new KWS accommodation requirements for personnel in the field.
The TOTAL KENYA MOTORSHOW Rhino Ark wins Silver Award The largest motor expo in Middle Africa – Total Kenya Motorshow – promised an unprecedented level of displays and action packed-events. Total Kenya was the key organiser and sponsor in conjuction with Kenya Motor Industry Association. Rhino Ark had an opportunity to put up an exhibit stand at the Motorshow which was held from the Sep 7-9 at the Ngong Racecourse. The judges awarded the stand second best with a Silver Award. Exhibited on the stand were five Charge vehicles: Ian Duncan’s Toyota Land Cruiser
KK Guards’ seamless security at Charge With a force of 44 smartly dressed, supremely fit big men on site and for the second year, the 2007 Rhino Charge competitors, campers, officials, sponsors and spectators had a hassle free event. Together with a fleet of four by four twin cabs in KK’s bright livery, the KK team provided 24 hour security at Venue Check in ensuring that all entrants to the venue paid the requisite camping fee. At big crowd control centres including the Gauntlet, Charge HQ and at Scrutineering, KK’s presence enabled competitors and organizers to focus on the big event without any distraction. The ‘rowdies’ were handled firmly but with a friendly face. The event ran seamlessly throughout with all security challenges handled directly by the KK team. Commented Juan Mioch the team manager: "At KK we don’t let security considerations drive you into the dirt!
Surf, Sarah & Mike Higgin’s Lada Niva, Lars Svennson’s Land Rover 110 Pick-up, Alan McKittrick’s Range Rover Buggy and old time veteran Jas Sehmi’s Jeep MB. The motorshow’s new venue proved spacious enough due to the numerous activities that had been planned for the three days. The action programme included everything from aerobatics to golf, stunt driving and extreme 4WD demos to dancers, Fire-fighting demos to a marching band. Many motor company stands also launched new models with the legendary Hummer and Chrysler from DT Dobie.
It is no longer acceptable to hire a few casual workers and call them your security staff because if things go wrong, it is potentially your liberty that is at stake. We are pleased that we can provide the kind of security that Rhino Charge now requires. A professional, specialist and customer-focused service that addresses the need for proactive coordination and management of safety and security at high profile events, is an essential ingredient for a successful event.

This year Charlie Campbell, Tim Eyre, Robert Klingenschmid, Matt Oxley and Rich Perez ran the London Marathon for Rhino Ark and the Multiple Sclerosis Research Society. £4800 was raised for Rhino Ark and an equal amount for MSRC. Runners have said that they like running for two charities and runners have found it much easier to raise funds for a human as well as an environmental charity. For next year, Rhino Ark has 5 Golden Bond tickets. Because of demand, it is raising the minimum sponsorship to £2000 + entry costs (£293.75). Already, Anna and Emily Caddick have committed to running exclusively the London Marathon 2008 for Rhino Ark. If you want to run the London Marathon 2008 and are prepared to commit to raising the above sums of money for Rhino Ark, please contact Guy Tritton, Chairman of Rhino Ark (UK) ([email protected]
