Masai Mara, Kenya - Decline in the wildlife!

2012-02-15
Continuing wildlife population declines and range contraction in the Mara region of Kenya during 1977–2009. This is based in an article first published online 20th May 2011 on the website Journal of Zoology, and it was published in the magazine The Zoological Society of London, Volume 285, Issue 2, pages 99–109, September 2011
Abstract Populations of many wild ungulate species in Africa are in decline largely because of land-use changes and other human activities. Analyses that document these declines and advance our understanding of their underlying causes are fundamental to effective management and conservation of wild ungulates.

We analyzed temporal trends in wildlife and livestock population abundances in the Mara region of Kenya. We found that wildlife populations in the Mara region declined progressively after 1977, with few exceptions. Populations of almost all wildlife species have declined to a third or less of their former abundance both in the protected Masai Mara National Reserve and in the adjoining pastoral ranches.

Human influences appeared to be the fundamental cause. Besides reinforced anti-poaching patrols, the expansion of cultivation, settlements and fences and livestock stocking levels on the pastoral ranches need to be regulated to avoid further declines in the wildlife resource.
