If Sport hunting is brought back to Kenya you will see many of these wildlife sanctuaries popping up in the bush

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
