Mushrooms, Monkeys and Butterflies
The Kakamega Rainforest is the last existing piece of rainforest in Kenya. Once upon a time the forest connected Kenya with the Kongo but due to the greed of humanity it was cut down. Nowadays it measures only 238 km² and you can walk from the east to west in a one day walk.
Inside the forest you can find 360 species of birds, 380 species of plants, 400 species of butterflies and 7 species of primates. Therefore it is very important to help to protect this wonderful natural habitat with all it’s beautiful wildlife.
If you would like to get in contact with the Kakamega crew or the leading primate researcher feel free to leave a comment or write an email.
On the following pictures you’ll see the blue monkey, the baboon (pavian), and the colobus monkey 🙂
