Kenya has a remarkable Landscape characterized by Savannah full of majestic animals, pristine beaches bordered by coral reefs, searing deserts, and beautiful snow-capped mountains. Its history, arts, and architecture consist of a unique fusion of local pastoralists, Arab traders, and European colonialists. In Kenya, there is something for everyone to experience and love.
Kenya has 5 biodiversity hot spots and 61 Important Bird Areas (IBAs). These unique ecosystems include the Indian Ocean islands of Lamu and Kisite, the Afro-montane forests of Mount Kenya, the equatorial forests, the coral reefs, saline and freshwater lakes, and the northern dry lands. Kenya’s known biodiversity species includes 7,000 plants, 25,000 invertebrates, 1,133 birds, 315 mammals, 191 reptiles, 180 freshwater fish, 692 marine fish, 88 amphibians, and 2,000 species of fungi and bacteria. Kenya is particularly famous for large mammals like the African elephant, the black rhino, the leopard, and the African lion.
Birds play an important role in Kenya’s landscape, attracting international ornithologists. Endangered and threatened birds found in Kenya include the Madagascar pond-heron, the Saker falcon, the Egyptian vulture, the Sokoke scops-owl, and the Basra reed-warbler. Kenya’s lakes and their surrounding wetlands play a vital role as a stopover for the migratory route of thousands of birds. However, biodiversity assessments are nearly two decades old, which is a significant challenge for conservation efforts.
Biodiversity performs an important role in the daily lives of locals through food security, tourism, and cultural traditions. Like many countries in Africa, Kenya’s protected areas were established by colonial governments for the purposes of big game hunting and resource extraction. Many of the local communities were not consulted about these demarcation lines and were thus alienated from their sources of food, medicine, wood and water.
