Eland wandering the plains of Mara North Conservancy with the imposing Aitong Hill in the background.
Eland are the largest, but also the slowest antelope species, and although they are seen fairly commonly, they are extremely hard to get close to due to their skittish nature.
Observing wildlife in the vast expanse that is the Maasai Mara, there is an overwhelming sense of “this is how it should be”. Animals should be roaming free in areas of wilderness, free from human impact. Human-wildlife conflict is still a big issue, but organisations such as Mara Predator Programme and Conservancy Guardians are making big strides in finding sustainable ways for humans and wildlife to live side by side. That is why I have chosen to support them with this exhibition.
