With such a huge number a few these mammal species are certain to be endemic.

Increases in production of food of animal origin can be achieved through adoption of more efficient and sustainable livestock husbandry practices, including use of more efficient genotypes or exploitation of non-conventional animal.

A survey on smallholder livestock production with emphasis on monogastric animals was conducted in 20 villages of seven so-called ‘groupements’ of South Kivu province in DR Congo, situated along a north to south-west axis with the town of Bukavu in the center.

This land adjacent to Lake Kivu is located at elevations ranging around – m asl, experiencing tropical highland climate.

The Great Rift Valley is home to a number of lakes, arid and rugged landscapes, and volcanic landforms with areas of active hot springs and geothermal activity.

the Kenyan Highlands comprise one of the most successful agricultural production regions in Africa; glaciers are found on Mount Kenya, Africa's second highest peak; unique physiography supports abundant and varied wildlife of scientific and economic value; Lake Victoria, the world's largest tropical lake and the second largest fresh water lake.

Kenya, country in East Africa famed for its scenic landscapes and vast wildlife preserves. It is bordered to the north by South Sudan and Ethiopia, to the east by Somalia and the Indian Ocean, to the south by Tanzania, and to the west by Lake Victoria and Uganda.

Its capital is Nairobi. Nearly all the country’s crop production is rainfed, and almost half of animal production occurs in arid and semi-arid lands. The growing impact of drought and unreliable rainfall are expected to significantly constrain the sector.

As human populations increase and demand for food and energy expands, the need for forage and the other range resources will increase.

Farms in Kenya range from small-scale subsistence family operations to large-scale mechanized enterprises with crops and/or livestock.
