The Mountain Bongo is a critically endangered antelope only found in Kenya. Fewer than 100 individuals are believed to survive in the wild. Their known distribution is restricted to parts of the Aberdare and Mt. Kenya forests, as well as small, especially vulnerable groups in the Mau and Mt. Eburu forests. To safeguard the Mountain Bongo from extinction, 15 experienced bongo trackers from local communities conduct regular patrols, remove snares and traps, collect evidence of Bongo presence, and report on any illegal activity. Their patrols provide vital scientific data to form an information baseline about Bongo habitat utilisation and threats.
