Lake Naivasha is an international Ramsar site that has prolific birdlife, from majestic fish eagles to tiny malachite kingfishers. Large concentrations of waterfowl, among them red-knobbed coot, African spoonbills and little grebe. Black bass and Tilapia are caught in the lake, but illegal fishing methods gave rise to temporary fishing bans in 2002 & 2012, which has helped to increase fish stocks. The lake is also home to a sizeable hippo population, which makes it common to see hippo grazing in the moonlight.
