Kenya Wildlife Service has begun plans to fence off a section of the Nairobi National Park in a move that is aimed at accommodating an increasing number of orphaned animals and increase business from tourism.

The land to be encompassed will be about 15 acres of the park. Dutch children, through the Wildlife Fund, the Rockefeller Foundation and a number of Nairobi firms, funded the expansion.

Despite KWS defending the initiative as noble, the move has attracted criticism from different conservation groups who say that some species in the land will be endangered.
