The Sengwer, a tribe of hunter-gatherers and beekeepers who also keep livestock, have lived in Cherangany mountains in Kenya - land they consider sacred - for centuries. Today, they face eviction from their ancestral lands. Approximately 12,000 people were told to move from the forest area to make way for a nature conservation and reforestation project financed by the Kenyan government and the World Bank. The Sengwer, however, pride themselves for their traditional methods for preserving their heritage lands. When they refused, forest guards began burning down their houses.

The Almighty Goat
Karaman, Turkey
By Amy Hume
09 Apr 2013

Unlike sheep who follow their leader to the next grazing destination, goats choose the destination. Goats are selective eaters, so their owners must abide by their rules when finding a summer home.
As a result, goat milk and cheese is more lucrative than sheep products.

The Yörük, nomads of Anatolia and the Balkans, rely on animals as their livelihood. Due to the introduction of modern technology, education and government subsidies, some of the shepherds have become sedentary. For those that still migrate in the traditional way, they live in the lowlands during the winter and the mountains in the summer. For the modern families, they live in the villages or cities in the winter and have summer homes on the seaside. For the younger generations, there is struggle between keeping with tradition and evolving into modern life, which is threatening the culture of these historical nomads.

Some shepherds wield sheep for the wool, meat and milk. And they're much easier to transport to the summer destinations. Goats prove to be more work as they are selective in their summer homes due to their choice in grazing.
