Hirola population within the 30000 Ha Hirola sanctuary continues to increase. A recent aerial and ground surveys stated that the population has duplicated since its creation. It is a clear success for the hirola conservation, under the umbrella of NRT through community conservation.

I love this Antelope. I saw some in the Satao area of Tsavo in 2008. It is great to hear good news about them.AJ
