Lobikito Leparselu cares for his family’s goats at dawn in northern Kenya. Here, as in Somaliland, losing livestock to cheetahs can be devastating. “I probably lose more than 20 a year out of my hundred,” his father, Leparselu Lemongu, says. “That’s my wealth, and I see it slipping away.” Predation pushes some herders to capture and sell cheetah cubs to smugglers, but buyers seeking an exotic pet are the ones perpetuating the illegal trade.

Through documentary photography Nichole Sobecki brings attention to humanity’s fraught, intimate, and ultimately unbreakable connection to the natural world. Born in New York, she has lived in Nairobi for the past decade.
