Bongo Surveillance

Eburu June 10 male Bongo 

The Eastern Mountain Bongo Antelope is a critically endangered species with their remnant population thought to be below 100! The bongo, which is only found in Kenya, is known for extreme shyness and exceptionally good hearing – two characteristics that make it so difficult to track that even the photo featured here was taken using a trap camera.

Mike Prettejohn founded the Bongo Surveillance Programme (BSP) in 2004 to protect and investigate the status of the remaining wild Bongo. Together with a team of scouts, he has confirmed the existence of pockets of bongo populations in the Aberdares, Mt. Kenya and Mau ecosystems.
Rhino Ark supports BSP by providing funding and logistical support.
