Abijata-Shala Lakes National Park (ASLNP), located 200 KM south of Addis Ababa, a conservation zone established in 1970, area of 887 km2 combining two saline lakes and surrounding woodland, aims to conserve the aquatic birds and biodiversity in its surrounding. It has great potential to attract tourists, generates revenue for the economy. ASLNP off-limits to hunting, grazing, logging, mining, agriculture and other human activities; and entangled with multitude of problems and due to human modifications considered as ‘ecological islands’ by resource users.
