What happens when two endangered species collide? Wild lions in Laikipia County, Kenya, are winning the struggle for survival thanks to the efforts of local conservationists, but one of the many animals they prey on is the Grevy's zebra, a species that is quickly approaching extinction. Researchers at the Mpala Research Centre are working to understand whether or not lion predation is making a significant impact of the survival of the Grevy's zebra and how changes in local ranching practices could help lions, zebras and many other struggling species. Discover how humans, livestock, and lions live together successfully.
