These days the Kenya Wildlife Service, as they announced, was to make a census of the animals present in the Tsavo National Park. Counts really important, because the exceptional and tragic drought this year is unfortunately endangering the lives of many species in the savanna. As stated by KWS spokesman Paul Gathitu the national newspaper The Star, the air census has been postponed due to the high temperatures and strong winds which move earth and dust throughout the wildlife conservation area.
Difficulty confirmed by one of the pilots who were to monitor everything.
The KWS has received about 200,000 euro for the census, partly by government and partly by international organizations such as Save The Elephant, USAID, International Fund for Animal Welfare, The T0savo Trust and the World Wide Fund for Nature.
There is apprehension about the results, because although it is said that the number of animals would be increased, you know for a fact that because of human activities within the park, the species are forced to leave their natural habitats and to change their habits.
Among those reported as "human habits" there is certainly the problem of the herds of cows and their herdsmen grazing to interior of the park, pushing the predators to move towards easy prey and changing the diets.
It will be very important, therefore, in addition to the census of elephants, lions and buffalo, cows do soon a census of staying inside the park.
In recent days, it was carried out a major operation to turn the cattle out of the Tsavo East, but until yesterday tourists and experts still have been able to notice a very different animal from what they are accustomed to marvel at and liking.
