Serengeti Shall Not Die

(Click on photo to view full size)

Bernhard and Michael Grzimek brought the Serengeti to world attention with the book and movie Serengeti Shall Not Die. Unfortunately, Michael Grzimek was killed in a plane crash when a griffon-vulture hit his wing and blocked the rudder cables. He was buried on the rim of Ngorongoro crater overlooking the base of the crater. Above is a photo of the memorial erected at his grave.
