Sunset over Nairobi, Kenya

East-Africa is famous for its vast savannahs and the biodiversity so typical for this particular landscape. Yet the region harbors a number of other forest ecosystems, including lowland and mountain rain forests, dryland forests and woodlands, and of course swamp forests and coastal mangroves. Similar to the other East-African states, Kenya is struggling with high rates of deforestation. Its forests and woodlands are threatened by illegal logging, changing climate and encroachment on forests for agricultural land and fuelwood.
