Impact of Land Use Changes on Wildlife Population in Nairobi National Park and Kitengela Dispersal Areas in Kenya

Lynnette Mwari Kiboro | Christopher Nkonge Kiboro


Abstract: Today, sustainable management of biodiversity has become a major global concern. This concern has been prompted by the realization that biodiversity is rapidly being lost through increased use of species and widespread alteration of habitats due to human activities such as cultivation, pastoralism and urbanization. The rapidly increasing human population and changes in lifestyles have a direct threat to wildlife conservation. Land subdivision, human settlement and poor planned developments around wildlife dispersal areas are particularly posing a major threat to wildlife population. This paper provides empirical analysis of the impact of land use changes on wild animals population around the Nairobi National Park and Kitengela Conservation areas for the period between 2000 and 2008.
