The recently upgraded Isiolo-Marsabit highway has become a death trap for wildlife which use it on a regular basis.
The rampant loss of animals triggered a stakeholders meeting led by Shivani Bhalla of Ewaso Lions and Letoiye Daniel of Westgate Conservancy.
They met yesterday to address the issue and compile data which is to be presented to KWS and Kenya National Highways Authority director general.
One of the key recommendations in the report is the need for speed bumps to be erected in identified wildlife crossing points.
So far, a young male lion has been hit along that road, several Grevy zebras and hyenas have also been hit. On Sunday an aardwolf, which is not only a rare but also an endangered species, was found run over along the same stretch.
