African buffalo (Syncerus caffer), Masai Mara Reserve, Kenya

Year: 2012
From collection: African Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The buffalo is listed as Least Concern as the species remains widespread, with a global population estimated at nearly 900,000 animals, of which more than three-quarters are in protected areas. While some populations (subspecies) are decreasing, others will remain unchanged in the long term if large, healthy populations continue to persist in a substantial number of national parks, equivalent reserves and hunting zones in southern and eastern Africa.
