dc.description.abstractThe Kinangop Grasslands IBA (Important Biodiversity Area) lies on the Kinangop plateau flanked by the Aberdares and the Rift Valley, near Lake Naivasha. These montane grasslands are part of the Kenyan Highlands Endemic Bird Area and harbour a distinctive avifauna that includes several species of threatened and endemic species, notably Sharpe's Longclaw Macronyx sharpei. These grasslands are rapidly being converted to cultivated fields and woodlots, and the unique grassland flora and fauna are threatened by habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation.
