Everybody in Malindi for crocodile business

In Kenya is not protected specie, KWS encourage raising

Are already two international companies who raise crocodiles taken along the Galana River, inland from Malindi, then kill them and sell the skin and in the second instance, the meat.
In the Country of the Protection of the savannah animals, the crocodile is a protected species and its easy reproduction is not a concern for a possible extinction. In fact so it should also be for the river hippos colleagues, who instead are protected and they captivity for the meat trade it is prohibited.
Instead, the Kenya Wildlife Service encourages companies that want to invest in crocodiles.
A Kakoneni is already a British company, the Kazuri London Crocodile farm, which breeds and exports crocodiles with great success.
Mildred Perker, English entrepreneur, has reached an agreement with local authorities to export crocodile skin.
An amphibious precious handbag can be worth up to 30 thousand euro.
"To breed the crocodiles with intelligence and remove them from the river helps the development of this ecosystem - said Perker - plus we've created an open abattoir free to all citizens of the Kakoneni area that can feed a nutritious meat like crocodile" .
Now it is said that the Chinese also are coming up on the banks of the Galana, and that there would already be a company that would have started a small farm for the production and export.
The market is expanding, although it will be to see how many licenses the KWS will decide to donate for this "is" legalized.
But it seems that the crocodile will not commuova indignant anyone around here.
