Wild life/wild animals in Ethiopia: Types, challenges and conservation
Yohannis Begna Chimdessa and Mersimoy Temesgen Begna
Ethiopia is a country with a wide range of biological species, primarily huge mammals. The main priority for maintaining animal resources is protected areas, which also help a country's economy grow. A great variety of biological species, particularly enormous mammals, can be found in Ethiopia. Protected areas should be given top priority for protecting wildlife resources because they also boost a nation's economy. They do, however, struggle to meet the needs of both people and animals. Even though most communities believe they are protected, even when places and species benefited from conservation initiatives, the lack of incentives made locals less inclined to support them. Maintaining protected areas is crucial to biodiversity conservation because it makes it impossible to sustainably utilize animals for development. Therefore, mitigating and preventive strategies for conservation measures are needed in order to manage wildlife in a sustainable way.
