Abstract:

Human-lion conflict has been an increasing problem in Kenya, especially around Nairobi National Park. In recent years Nairobi National Park lions have experienced a serious threats due to retaliatory killing by local communities outside the park. The main aim of my PhD research is to analyze factors contributing to lion-livestock conflicts around Nairobi National Park (NNP). For the conservation of the lions, especially a better understanding of the factors influencing human-lion conflicts will help to develop science based solutions to resolve human–lion conflict.
