Kenya Wildlife, People Hurt by Major Drought
<< Previous   5 of 5    
A multiyear drought in Kenya is affecting iconic African animals in the country's parks, including Samburu National Reserve, where conservationists found this zebra carcass on August 17, 2009.

Wildlife officials say animals are starting to die at alarming rates. Some conservationists fear that cattle herders might even start killing wildlife if they continue to be denied access to water and grazing land inside national parks.
