Kenya's Mau Forest: Indigenous and wildlife at risk
Share it ...



A battle is underway for the survival of the largest native forest in East Africa.
Since the days of the British colonials in Kenya, swaths of the Mau Forest have been cleared for plantations and farming and environmentalists have said hundred of species are threatened by the diminishing forest.
Two years ago, the indigenous Ogiek people won the right to return to forest – their ancestral home – and are trying to restore the ecological balance.
Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque has this exclusive report from Mau Forest.
