Description:

Africa is undergoing changes in climate and land-use as is the rest of the world. Since 2001, my project - Action for Cheetahs in Kenya - has studied the effects of human influences on cheetah status in Kenya. To complete reports I would like to use a variety of land use maps to evaluate the areas of cheetah presence and confirmed extirpation. Remote sensing maps will assist with this project.
