Land Degradation and Our Future

The disappearance of grasslands, while prevalent in Kenya, is an issue that is present in the United States as well in a different form: conversion to cropland. Although grasslands’ importance is sometimes forgotten, they are homes to some of our most valuable and unique species. Preserving the habitats of species matters, not only for the animals, but also for the preservation of many American’s livelihoods and for the environment we all appreciate.
