A general view of elephants grazing after spraying sand on their bodies at Kimana

Sanctuary in Kimana, Kenya, on March 2, 2021. - A turf war has erupted over a 180-acre avocado farm near one of Kenyas premier national parks, where elephants and other wildlife graze against the striking backdrop of Africas highest peak.
Opponents of the farm say it obstructs the free movement of iconic tuskers -- putting their very existence at risk -- and clashes with traditional ways of using the land.
The farms backers refute this, saying their development poses no threat to wildlife and generates much-needed jobs on idle land.
The rift underscores a broader struggle for dwindling resources that echoes beyond Kenya, as wilderness is constricted by expanding farmland to feed a growing population. (Photo by Yasuyoshi CHIBA / AFP)

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print captured by Yasuyoshi Chiba, we are offered a general view of elephants grazing peacefully after spraying sand on their bodies at Kimana Sanctuary in Kenya. The image showcases the serene coexistence between wildlife and nature against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest peak. However, hidden beneath this picturesque scene lies a fierce turf war over a 180-acre avocado farm located near one of Kenya's renowned national parks. Critics argue that the farm obstructs the free movement of iconic tuskers, jeopardizing their very existence and clashing with traditional land usage practices. On the other hand, supporters refute these claims, emphasizing that their development poses no threat to wildlife and instead provides much-needed employment opportunities on previously unused land. This conflict highlights a larger struggle for dwindling resources that extends beyond Kenya's borders. As farmland expands to meet the demands of an ever-growing population, wilderness areas face constrictions, endangering both animal habitats and natural ecosystems. It is within this context that conservationists must navigate delicate balances between agriculture, tourism, and preserving biodiversity. Yasuyoshi Chiba's powerful photograph serves as a visual reminder of the complex challenges faced by communities worldwide in striking harmony between economic development and environmental preservation.
