The Otomys barbouri is classified as endangered on the IUCN list of threatened species owing to habitat destruction. With increasing tourist activities, vegetation is predisposed to further degradation which may make the habitat unsuitable for the species. This project is therefore aimed at determining the influence of tourist activities on the population and distribution of Otomys barbouri in the Afro-alpine grasslands of Mt Elgon.
