NAIROBI (Kenya Wildlife Service) -- Kenya Wildlife Service ranger, Quresh Abdi Guyo has won the 2018 African Ranger Award, in recognition of 'her exceptional passion, commitment and dedication'.

Making the announcement, Alibaba Foundation said Guyo has demonstrated excellence as a wildlife ranger.

Guyo is an investigation assistant based in Isiolo in Kenya’s Eastern Conservation area.

"The African Ranger Award is given annually to rangers in Africa who make every effort to combat poaching, habitat loss, and the illegal wildlife trade.

"It is a prestigious honor that serves to recognize the best of the best within its ranks", the organizers of the award said in a statement.

There were fifty finalists in the competition with eighteen Kenyans making it to the final list.

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) is a Kenyan state corporation that was established in 1989 to conserve and manage Kenya’s wildlife.

It is established under an Act of Parliament Cap 376 (The Wildlife Conservation and Management (Amendment 1989) Act) with the mandate to conserve and manage wildlife in Kenya, and to enforce related laws and regulations.

It manages the biodiversity of the country, protecting and conserving the flora and fauna.

KWS manages most of the National Parks and Reserves in Kenya, the most popular exception being the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which is managed by local authorities.

The money collected as entrance fees in the parks is used to help the conservation of the plants and animals within the parks.
