Quarrying in Kenya – Recreation
Former limestone quarries have been transformed into indigenous coastal forest alongside Mombasa plant. The result of a quarry rehabilitation program launched decades ago and still being pursued today, the area is now a nature reserve called Halle Park. It supports rich biodiversity and acts as a refuge for many rare and endangered plants and animals in the region.
It is simply the responsibility of every Kenyan to conserve our environment. Sessional Paper No.3 of 2009 on National Land Policy on restoration and conservation of land quality states: “To restore the environmental integrity of land and facilitate sustainable management of land based resources, the Government shall: Establish institutional mechanisms for conservation of quality of land for environmental conservation purpose”.
