Kenya Wildlife, People Hurt by Major Drought

A Samburu tribesman digs deep to find water for his cattle in central Kenya on August 16, 2009. The Ewaso Nyiro riverbed where this well was dug has been dry for months, causing people to travel long distances with their families and livestock to find resources.

Kenya's ongoing drought has added pressure to a long-standing conflict between wildlife and the people who live near Kenya's protected lands. Cattle herders, for instance, have been illegally driving their animals deep into the country's parks in search of water and grazing land.
