Hirola Conservation Programme:

saving the world's most endangered antelope

Promotes the conservation of the hirola antelope and its fragile habitat in partnership with communities in eastern Kenya.

Where we work

Our work spans from over 7,600 km² along the border of Kenya and Somalia. In Kenya, our core operations areas include Garissa County (Ijara, Fafi areas), and the northern part of Lamu County. The Somalian population is now thought to be extinct and to validate this, it is possible our future work to include scouting trip to Somalia to confirm the absence/presence of hirola. We give special attention to herds in Ishaqbini, Arawale, Galmagala, Sangailu and Dekeka areas along all in Ijara and Fafi Districts of Garissa County.
