The corridor has already been greatly reduced and the only remaining uncultivated or ungrazed areas occur to the east of Igawa. Threats include clearance for agriculture, charcoal manufacture, burning and hunting.
It should be noted that further south there is technically no corridor between Mpanga/Kipengere and Kitulo National Park because they are contiguous. However, the link between these two PAs is important and it is possible that animals use another area to cross from one to another (see dotted red line in Fig. 6). The Wildlife Conservation Society has shown that lion and eland have returned to Kitulo from Mpanga/Kipengere and other species may follow.
