Lennox Kirao

Research scientist

Born and raised in Mida, Kirao was exposed to nature at an early age and this had a strong influence in his desire to pursue Bsc in Environmental Science at Pwani University.

Kirao’s interaction with ARK goes way back! As an ASSETS beneficiary, Kirao heard about ARK while he was in high school. With a growing interest in conservation, he volunteered with ARK a few times especially during his long holidays. In 2014, he worked as an intern, then joined full staff in 2015.

Kirao’s first interest was in plants (botany) but over time he has developed ornithological skills, and is currently coordinating A Rocha Kenya’s research projects. Kirao enjoys being in the field and discovering new species.
