The negative impact of fences on large mammals

The Great Migration is called Nature’s greatest show, where 1.3 million wildebeest, 400,000 Thomson’s gazelle, 200,000 zebra and 12,000 eland are travelling together between the green grass of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and the vast plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

Fencing has an evident negative impact on the migration, causing death and decline in population.
