Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Liz Kimbrough. Kudos to the Kenyan Government and the United Nations Environment Programme for getting the report together. In my mind it should have been a no-brainer regarding their worth not only to the country of Kenya but to the environment or the whole world as well. Read and noted.

I think this should have been pretty obvious. It's too bad money had to be wasted on this study. I really feel for these people and the position they are in. Without the scientific results of the study any effort at conservation would not carry weight and have authority. If the obvious were simply accepted, this money could have been better spent on other things...perhaps even planting MORE trees. It's the same the world over.
