why the ecosystem is important


The Maasai Mara is home to a wide variety of plant species, including grasses, shrubs, and trees. These plants form the foundation of the ecosystem, supporting a diverse array of wildlife.

Indigenous tree species like the acacia provide crucial habitats for numerous bird species and insects, and also serve as important food sources for herbivores.

Ecological Functions

Trees and plants play a critical role in soil stabilisation, preventing erosion and maintaining the integrity of the landscape.They contribute to the water cycle by regulating water flow, enhancing groundwater recharge, and reducing the risk of floods and droughts.


Habitat and Food Source

The diverse vegetation supports herbivores such as elephants, giraffes, and antelopes, which in turn sustain predators like lions and cheetahs.Specific plant species are crucial for certain animals; for example, the grazing patterns of wildebeests are directly tied to the growth cycles of grasses in the Mara.


Carbon Sequestration

The plants and trees in the Maasai Mara act as carbon sinks, absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Cultural and Economic Value

The Maasai people, who inhabit the region, rely on the local flora for traditional medicine, building materials, and as a source of fuel.Tourism, driven by the unique landscape and rich biodiversity, provides economic benefits to the local communities and supports conservation efforts.
