Lions, elephants and cheetahs are endangered too, the report says, citing the threat from an expanding human population.

The survey marked the first time KWS was conducting such an exercise aimed at informing its conservation policies.

In the report released late on Tuesday, the government said conservation efforts were facing a threat from an expanding population which is encroaching on the spaces reserved for wildlife.

Human activities such as farming and construction of roads and railways have affected the distribution of animals in some areas, the government said.

"Livestock incursions, logging, charcoal burning, settlements and fires were observed in conservation areas," the government said in the report.
