Setting Description:
Africa has been described as the “living Pleistocene,” a country where most of the large mammal species from that epoch still survive. With its diversity of habitats, Kenya boasts a particularly wide range of wild species. While the country leads other African nations in species and habitat protection, the future of its wildlife is still unstable. To ensure the survival of Kenya’s wildlife more work needs to be done towards understanding their behavioral biology.
