Serengeti volcanic grasslands

WWF Abstract

The Serengeti Volcanic Grasslands ecoregion has one of the highest concentrations of large mammals in the world. You’ll find more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and thousands of Thomson’s gazelles throughout the grasslands. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey. Within this ecoregion, the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area have been designated as World Heritage Sites and Biosphere Reserves due to the biodiversity and range of animals represented.
