Kenya Elephant Conservation Project
Elephants normally require
huge swaths of land for foraging and watering. Competition between
humans and animals forces the elephant to move into areas adjacent
creating conflict with the human population. Varying elephant migratory
patterns have made it hard to acquire data showing the distribution,
numbers, etc; data that can be used in
conservation and wildlife management efforts. read on...
The Kenya Lion Conservation Project
numbers have continued to decline in and around Kenya's wildlife
protected areas due to diverse
reasons including conflict with
humans and competition with other carnivores. Yet the Lion is an
important species as it is a top predator, affecting the numbers of its
and competitor species. This project will support conservation
efforts by documenting the
status of the lion in the Rombo area, as this remains one of the few
which there are lions living in relatively harmony with the community. read on...
