Kenya Pushing for Three of Its Lakes to Join the World Heritage Site List
15 March 2010
Nairobi — Kenya has submitted Lakes Nakuru, Bogoria and Elementaita for inclusion in the prestigious Unesco World Heritage List, meaning that the country is likely to benefit from global conservation funds.
Being in the World Heritage List means that a cultural site or landscape has been recognised for its unique universal value to humankind.
Once listed, sites cease to be the property of the host country and become a global property.
Thus, if listed, the three lakes will receive funds from Unesco for conservation and protection of the Kenya Lakes System.
This exceeds the one per cent global threshold for congregations making the Kenya Lakes System a critical site for the conservation of Lesser Flamingos in the world.
Besides, the three lakes form an important stopover site for the migratory birds flying in from other sites in Europe, Asia and South Africa.
Thus, the system is part of global network of Important Bird Areas, migratory flyway and wetlands of global significance.
Besides, the zone supports significant populations of threatened mammal species like the black and white rhino, the African wild dog, lion, cheetah, and leopard.
However, a round trip of the three lakes reveals that human activities such as farming, destruction of forests, poaching and excessive exposure to tourists threaten these fragile ecosystems and call for elaborate conservation efforts. …
Breeding attempts by the Lesser Flamingos have been recorded in the three lakes although they are known to breed in Lake Natron in Tanzania.
The systematic annual and seasonal migration processes provide scientists with an evolutionary window to understand the evolution of adaptations by species for survival under extreme and variable environments.
The East African flamingo populations fly within the Rift Valley lakes in Kenya and Tanzania, breeding and feeding.
Lake Elementaita is a key breeding site of the Great White Pelican population.
Up to 8,000 pairs of Great White Pelican breed there when the water levels are high and the rocky outcrops in the eastern sector are flooded to form islets on which the birds can safely nest.
