Insulation of Power Lines

KPLC on Pole

In 2009, Colobus Conservation began a project to insulate power lines to address in a long term manner, a method to reduce the electrocutions of primates in Diani. This is especially important given the low rate of survivorship when an individual is electrocuted.

In 2011, approximately 700 meters of insulation was laid in cooperation with Kenya Power and Lighting Company and local residents.
