Mammals doing well in Uganda’s national parks

2010. According to the Uganda Wildlife Authority, the number of animals in Uganda’s national parks and game reserves has risen sharply over the past decade. It says wildlife had benefited from improved monitoring and the expulsion of rebels from the country. The animals on the rise include buffalos, giraffes and elephants. New statistics show that the population with the biggest increase is that of the Impala, a grazing antelope. The number of Impala in Uganda has surged to more than 35,000, from around 1,600 at the time of the last census in 1999. Hippopotamuses, waterbucks, and zebras are also on the increase.
