Will Burrard-Lucas’ wildebeest time-lapse video has been commended in the new time-lapse category of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
The time-lapse conveys the magnitude of the migration. This footage was shot over five days in northern Serengeti, Tanzania. It shows the migrating wildebeest crossing the Mara River while moving south into Tanzania from Kenya.
The Serengeti Ecosystem supports 1.5 million wildebeest. These wildebeest are forced to migrate around a 40 000 square kilometre area in order to find fresh grazing pastures. The migration is full of danger and hardship for these resilient creatures. Thirst, hunger, exhaustion, predation and the Mara River are just some of the challenges they must face.
