Bongo (Tragelaphus eurycerus)
The Bongo is a large African antelope. Both males and females have “lyre-shaped” horns. (I love that description—lyre-shaped.) Their numbers are decreasing, and they’re threatened by the destruction of their forest habitat. One idea that might help bongos is the establishment of wildlife corridors that would let them safely travel from one national park to another.
