Those who want a Hyena named after them will have to pay Ksh 2 million.

Speaking during the Magical Kenya Tembo Naming Festival held in amboseli. Balala said hyenas are not endangered thus never having a need for a naming festival.

“Any animal can be named, but we opted to start with the elephants because they are the ones who are most endangered,” the CS explained.

Balala said that with the increasing numbers of elephants, the country had no choice but to develop innovative ways to conserve the animals.

“It is not easy to look after the increasing numbers and also protect the community from human- wildlife conflicts. So far, we have been able to raise Ksh 15 million, and we are targeting Ksh 100 million in the next one year,” the CS said
