Abstract
East Africa is blessed with a wonderful variety of land, extending from the coast up to almost 20,000 feet in elevation. Kenya, in particular, is endowed with varied land resources, and, in addition, still possesses fairly abundant wildlife populations of a considerable number of species. With increased emphasis on settlement and more intensive land use in many areas, the natural habitats of,many of the wildlife species will continually decrease. Wise land-use management must include intensive wildlife management if the wildlife resources is to be maintained at a viable level. The value of the wildlife resource, some of the factors involved in such management, an example of hunting exploitation in the United States, and possible courses of action are herein discussed.
