The elephant and zebra population has drastically reduced in the last four years. KWS director William Kipkoech says currently Kenya has 6,361 Elephants down from the 7415 in 2008 while that of zebras is 1870 from 2,400 in 2008. Kipkoech attributes the loss to increased poaching due to demand in ivory, drought and climate change.
