According to the first joint aerial cross-border wildlife census conducted in the Greater Amboseli-West Kilimanjaro/ Magadi-Natron landscapes there was a drastic decline in the numbers of large grazing herbivores between 2007 and 2010.
The wet season wildlife census covered 25 wild mammals and two bird species.
The elephant population in the Amboseli was found to have remained relatively stable with 1,087 in the year 2000, 1,090 in 2002, 967 in 2007 compared to the current population of 1,266.
Within this period, wildebeests declined by about 83 per cent from 18, 538 to 3,098; zebra declined by about 71 per cent from 15,328 to 4,432 while buffalo declined by 61 per cent from 588 to 231 in the Amboseli area.
