It seems that the mara river is threatened as well as the ecosystem

There are many threats to the Serengeti mara ecosystem, from roads crossing to global warming and more. Unfortunately fish in the river are now being driven to extinction as well – putting the livelihoods of millions of people in jeopardy.

Could sites like this become a thing of the past?

From farming deforestation mining illegal fishing and invasive species, there are many different factors damaging this population.

Without the river, the migration will collapse. Due to extraction for agriculture hydroelectricity and tourism, the levels have fallen and are continuing to degrade. 1.1 million people live in the Mara basin, split between Kenya and Tanzania.

Wouldn’t it be terrible if the migration was saved from roads, only to die due to the river failing because of the demands humans put on it.
