Kenya Wildlife Service mentions that there is currently 2800 uniformed agents to manage “approximately eight percent of the total landmass of Kenya that consists of 22 national parks, 29 national reserves and four national sanctuaries including six marine national reserves and four marine national parks. ”

This does not include the remaining percentage of land outside of these areas which can include key migration pathways for animals.

In 2012, 384 elephants and 29 rhinos were lost to poaching. This year 190 elephants and 34 rhinos have been killed. Likely that these numbers are approximates and that the counts are actually higher.

More bodies needed.
