Mt. Kenya Nat. Park: Initially, it was a forest reserve, before being announced as a national park. Currently, the national park is encircled by the forest reserve. In April 1978, the area was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Combined, the national park and forest reserve became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Four reasons why the government wanted to create a national park on and around Mount Kenya: the importance of tourism for the local and national economies, to preserve an area of great scenic beauty, to conserve the biodiversity within the park, and to preserve the water-catchment for the surrounding area.

Grade: B-

Amboseli Nat. Park (formerly known as Amboseli Game Reserve) in Kaijado County: In 1948, Amboseli was formalized as a National Game Reserve, initiating decades of conflict over the management of the dry season watering area. Many believed the springs were overgrazed by Maasai cattle, and a small 30-acre sanctuary was established to protect this water source.

Grade: A
