The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the most famous World Heritage Sites in the world. The Serengeti National Park alone is 5700 square miles in area and, with adjacent reserves such as the Masai Mara in Kenya, the total ecosystem is nearly 10,000 square miles. It is home to the largest land mammal migration on earth. More than two million wildebeests and zebras and other grazers make the migration each year from Masai Mara to Serengeti and back following the rains. Global warming, climate change and destructive developments threaten the survival of this migration.
