The region was originally 2,500 square kilometers, but much of it was destroyed as Rwandan refugees fleeing the war in Rwanda returned in 1994. Large areas of the national park have been lost due to large-scale deforestation and land grabs, and the majority of the wildlife has been mass hunted as an alternative protein supply. However, since the establishment of the Akagera Management Company in 2010, substantial portions of the national park have been restored to their former grandeur, and extinct species like the lion, rhino, and elephant have been successfully reintroduced into the park.
