Hells_Gate.jpgThe Kenya Wildlife Service has called for better management of resources around the Hells Gate National Park, following ongoing geothermal exploration by Kengen.

KWS acting strategy and change deputy director Edwin Wanyonyi said the drill of geothermal wells affects wild animals.

He denied that there are wrangles between KWS and Kengen over the ongoing work at Hells Gate.

This comes in the wake of reports that the number of wild animals and endangered species of birds were on the decline as Kengen moved in to drill more geothermal power in the park.

He was speaking during the launch of the sixth Wheelbarrow Race tobe held at the park on July 26.

Kengen has donated Sh3 million.

Nakuru county Chamber of Commerce chairman Kamau Njuguna said the drilling at the park has affected conservation efforts.
