Lake Turkana is the largest, most northerly and most saline of Africa's Rift Valley lakes and an outstanding site for the study of plant and animal communities. The parks are a stopover for migrant waterfowl and are major breeding grounds for the Nile crocodile and hippopotamus. The Koobi Fora deposits are rich in pre-human, mammalian, molluscan and other fossil remains and have contributed more to the understanding of Quaternary palaeoenvironments than any other site on the continent

Aa threats to the site is the The Gibe III dam on the Omo River in Ethiopia with have potentially disastrous effects on the lake’s inflow, salinity and levels and on the livelihoods of its tribal populations.
