The future of Nairobi National Park. Paula Kakumbu writes "... our hope is that there is still time to achieve a negotiated consensus on the best outcome for conservation and development. If successful, this dialogue will not only help secure the future of Nairobi National Park. It can also be the start of a process, building bridges between politicians, planners, engineers and the conservationists to improve decision making for future development projects"

A must-read! By +alan barry 
"Twenty years ago I could not have lived openly in Ireland. Even now it’s still at the back of my mind, writing this book and talking about some of my military experiences has posed some challenges. The army drummed it into us: keep a working cover story at all times. I have blown my cover story out the door in writing this book. Up until now, I had always shied away from talking about my past with any candour." ... "Salesman with an AK47" is the fascinating first novel of author and public speaker Alan Barry.
“Salesman with an AK-47” details the life of a young Irish immigrant who grew up in the UK in the 1970s, during the height of the IRA’s campaigns in mainland Britain. The book recounts Alan’s training as a Grenadier Guard, one of the British Army’s most elite regiments. The Catholic Irish soldier served in Northern Ireland in the midst of ‘The Troubles’, the violence of the mid-1980s. He later guarded the Queen.
Back on ‘civvy street’, Alan describes his life as a highly successful executive during “the rollercoaster of the 1990s, the Filofax era of yuppies.” Business failure later leads to desperation and a marriage breakup.
Salvation appears in an unlikely place: Afghanistan and Alan tells of his love and respect for this misrepresented country and its people. Unexpectedly, an incident in Alan’s military past unravels him. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder leads him to “the darkest hole I’ve ever been in in my life.” Alan’s story next leads us to Papua New Guinea, Iraq and Uganda.
“Salesman with an AK-47” has received numerous positive reviews on Amazon. On the back of the book’s popularity, Alan Barry is now a public speaker. “If I have one wish, it would be that my book will help others to come to grips with their own demons, and bring closure to events that maybe need addressing in their own lives.”
