Welcome to the Bongo Surveillance Project
The Bongo Surveillance Project was founded in 2004 in the Aberdare forests of central Kenya, one of the last places the critically endangered eastern bongos are known to survive in the wild. Led by founder Mike Prettejohn, a team of experienced trackers gather scientific data on the presence and distribution of the remaining mountain bongo as well as data on human activity within the indigenous forests where these animals are found. Our mission is clear:
"The objective of the Bongo Surveillance Project is to protect and conserve the critically endangered eastern or mountain bongo and its habitat, by working with local communities and stakeholders worldwide."
