dc.description.abstractThis policy brief explores the significance of and pressures affecting sacred groves in Kenya. Sacred forests are celebrated for their culturally and traditionally important sites and resources, even drawing visitors from abroad to appreciate their cultural value and to restock medicinal supplies. Even with the cultural value of sacred forests, they are still threatened by population pressures and more needs to be done to improve the livelihoods of those living adjacent to the forest. The brief recommends combining modern knowledge with traditional, indigenous knowledge to enhance forest conservation efforts.en
