Mt. Kenya Bush viper

The endemic Mt Kenya Bush viper risks eminent erasure from the face of the earth unless urgent conservation measures are taken. Occurring just in a small geographic area less than 300sq km, its habitat has been shrinking over the years while its population has tremendously declined due to over-collection especially for trade purposes, both local and international trade.

Bonobo

We have had a three year project to survey the biodiversity of the the region south of Kisangani and between the three rivers :Tshuapa-Lomami-Lualaba in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. Subsequent to our discovery of important populations of bonobo (Pan paniscus) that were being hunted, we have worked to control hunting and create a protected area. This project supports this effort.
