Here, thanks to the mineral salts in the soil, the pastures are particularly nutritious and grasslands are characterized by low grass, which is the preferred one by the wildebeests.
This is the birthing period: approximately 400,000 puppies are given birth in 2-3 weeks in February; this sort of synchronised delivery is a form of protection of the species, in fact coming to light altogether the calves are more likely to survive the onslaught of predators.
The herds remaining here for such a long period fully exploit the pastures to a point that they cannot be regenerated in time, given the voracity of the herbivorous.
