Bongos are a beautiful species of antelope found in Kenya. They live only in high mountain forests and they are in big danger from hunters, there are only about 100 living in the wild!

The Bongo Surveillance Project has been set up to watch out for and protect Kenya’s Bongo. They find out information about the bongo, like what they eat and where they go, and then have used that information to make things like cameras better for filming the bongos and any poachers or hunters that want to catch or kill them. If the hunters are on film - they get in trouble! I think the best thing the people running this project have done is to start 19 Bongo Wildlife Clubs for kids in the villages and towns closest the bongo habitat. Kids love getting involved and it will mean they might care about the animals even when they have grown up.

Good on Kenya’s kids!
