The combination of wildlife and prehistory makes Sibiloi National Park unique in East Africa and has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO
This was undertaken primarily to ensure the long-term protection of the many important fossil sites in the area but also to conserve the rare fauna and flora endemic to area.
