A herd of roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) move across the grasslands of Akagera in eastern Rwanda. The ground is blackened, the result of controlled burns by forest rangers to prevent fires and manage the savannah. One of the largest African antelopes, the roan are peaceful and calm, however, when threatened they can run up to 35 miles an hour over great distances and can use their horns to charge predators. Like many species, the roan antelope is threatened by loss of habitat from human encroachment as well as from poaching.
