The Karenga Community Wildlife Management Area (KCWMA) is a conservation area in north-eastern Uganda.

Ecology[edit]

The KCWMA is in the Northern Acacia-Commiphora bushlands and thickets ecosystem, part of the Kidepo Valley National Park critical landscape.[1]

Conservation[edit]

Among the challenges in the KCWMA are wildlife poaching, lack of adequate infrastructure for eco-tourists, and unsustainable use of natural resources, such as charcoal manufacturing.[1]
