What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Population growth and degradation of the land around Kenya's National Parks pose serious threats to Kenya's ecosystem and biodiversity. Challenges include: Human-Wildlife conflicts, Illegal Grazing and harvesting of trees, Bush meat trade, lack of incomes for locals, Scarcity of water and rise in crime and HIV/AIDS due to the increased tourism and trucking industry. "You have to begin with the people because they are causing the problems." Adam Tuller/Chairman
