|Aerial Survey of the Destruction of Mt. Kenya, Imenti and Ngare Ndare Forest Reserves (Kenya Wildlife Service, 1999, 48 p.)|
Kenya is best known as a land of arid and semi-arid habitats with little forest. Sadly, the little that there is has been the focus of unplanned, usually illegal utilisation with disastrous consequences for bio-diversity, catchment and loss of soil. As a country, Kenya cannot afford to watch the remaining natural forests being destroyed. The forests are a critical and invaluable national asset that must be protected.
This report is clear and provides unequivocal data on the current situation. I hope that with such evidence, actions will follow to put an end to the wanton degradation of our nation's natural forests.
