Conservation Outcomes
 

Kenya-wide over a 12-year period spanning 1997–2008. Overall, 4,493 human–hippo conflict incidences were recorded, representing a mean rate of 4.46 ± 0.29 incidences per month. The conflict incidences increased by 1,285% from 1997 to 2008, resulting in 937 peak incidences reported in 2008. . . . Crop damage was the most commonly reported type of conflict. Wildlife managers attended to 90% of all reported conflict incidences. Hippo mortality increased linearly with increasing conflict incidences, portending a precarious future for hippos outside protected areas of Kenya.”
