Climate change decimates Amboseli Park

Personal memory by Janna Barnes

2019 CE - 2022 CEAmboseli, Kenya

In just a few years between my first trip to Kenya and my most recent visit, climate change caused protracted drought to decimate Amboseli Park instead of a "game drive" our driver showed us animal carcasses sprinkled about the dry and desolate bush (now mostly arid land).
