Endangered Heritage

Despite its prominence nationally and internationally, the Mara ecosystem in Kenya is under threat from many sides. The destruction of the Mau Forests (which feed the Mara River and help regulate the climate in this part of Kenya) threatens the survival of the entire ecosystem and all the people and animals that depend upon it. Unsustainable tourism levels risk “killing the goose that laid the golden egg” – a balance needs to be found between tourism numbers and the health of the environment. Poaching – particularly poaching for bushmeat – remains a major threat to the Mara, its wildlife and all the people benefiting from this remarkable natural heritage.
