Overall post-release mortality was 6% with mortality at individual conservation areas ranging from 4% at Itala Nature reserve to 20% at Kruger National Park. An effective report will be written both in plain language for non-experts but also to appropriate technical standards. Different names are used for the report that is prepared on the findings of the EIA process. Some call it EIA Report, others Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or Environmental Statement (ES). A survey of trypanosome infection in G. pallidipes was performed in five localities (Ukunda, Diani, Muhaka, Shimba Hills and Mwalewa) on the Kenya coast during Infection rate of Glossina was higher in areas with domestic animals than those with only wild animals.

Roosevelt's sable Hippotragus niger roosevelti is one of Kenya's most distinctive and threatened large mammals.

Historically, sable herds occurred in the vicinity of Taveta, and in the miombo and Diospyros woodlands of the coastal hinterland from the Tanzania-Kenya border northward for at least km. Most of the historic distribution of sable in Kenya lies 15–35 km Cited by: 3.

According to a report by the Department of Remote Sensing and Resource Survey, Kenya ‘s wildlife population declined by % between and This massive reduction has continued unabated due to the rampant illegal bush meat trade, excision of forests and widespread encroachment into parks and reserves for human settlement.

The coast DFZ has a huge cattle population, sits at the cross-roads of major stock routes and has a close proximity to the Tsavo East/West parks and the Shimba Hills national park 5. The DFZ is intended to serve up to 10 counties in the former Coast and North Easterner provinces of Kenya with a total cattle population of million, million.

The empirical data presented in this paper was collected in the wildlife dispersal areas of Shimba Hills National Reserve and Amboseli National Park in Kenya.

The results of this study show that—as compared to other cost categories—the landowners’ transaction costs incurred in wildlife co-management were relatively low.

Kenya has more than 50 National Parks, reserves and sanctuaries covering some m hectares or % of the land area. Almost half of this area is accounted for by the two biggest National Parks, Tsavo East and Tsavo West. The genus Aloe is common in Kenya, with about 60 taxa recognised.

Observations from this study indicate that most of the taxa have a restricted distribution, with only Aloe secundiflora var. secundiflora being widespread in the country. The diversity patterns indicate a high concentration of taxa in three areas that are identified as Aloe hot spots and thus of high Cited by: 4.
