KENYA’S RIVER MARA VULNERABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE
The economic worth of the whole river basin is estimated at $7bn annually from tourism to agriculture. The Mara River is a river in Narok County and in Mara Region, and lies across the migration path of ungulates in the Masai Mara/Serengeti game reserves. The Mara River is most famous for the legendary wildebeest crossing, a dramatic event, which is featured in countless wildlife documentaries. The river is currently facing serious climatic changes which have resulted into floods. This is likely to also affect the animals and the number of tourists who have been visiting this river.
