In pics: Massive zebra project

Zebra project

Wildlife rangers in Kenya have begun moving thousands of zebras and wildebeest across the country to restock areas devastated by drought.

Experts have said it's the biggest movement of animals like this ever.

The rangers are using helicopters to herd the zebras into special enclosures, before loading them into lorries to transport them.

They are on their way to Amboseli National Park, where lions are starving because the draught has killed off a lot of the animals they would normally feed on.

Moving the zebras is just the first phase of the big project.

Experts reckon the project will cost 103m Kenyan shillings, which is about 900,000
