Leopards continue to reside in the Nairobi National Park ecosystem

April 17, 2011

Kate Maughling took this terrific photo (right) last week in Nairobi National Park.
Leopards are numorous in the Nairobi National Park ecosystem, but how numorous is a good question (possibly between 10 and 20) as leopards are extremely stealthy and often hunt only at night. What is known by a KWS study, however, is that lions often get blamed for the livestock kills actually made by leopards at night out in the important Nairobi National Park wildlife dispersal area, that is privately owned by Maasai pastoralists.
