Grant's Gazelle (Nanger granti), Masai Mara Reserve, Kenya

Year: 2012
From collection: African Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Grant's gazelle is a species of gazelle. Its populations are distributed from northern Tanzania to southern Sudan and Ethiopia, and from the Kenyan coast to Lake Victoria. The Grant’s gazelle is still a common species despite having being eradicated in certain areas. Major threats have been habitat destruction and hunting. The gazelle’s status as an unthreatened species is dependent on protection of the national parks and reserves it lives in. Examples of such parks include Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, and Lake Turkana National Parks in Kenya. Estimates of the population range from 140,000 to 350,000. While certain areas have stable popualtions, overall the population trend is going downward.
