Paignton Zoo is home to three eastern bongos: male Ali and females Azizi and Ada.
One of the largest forest antelopes, the eastern bongo (also known as the mountain bongo) can today only be found in a remote mountainous area of central Kenya.
They are browsers that eat a range of leaves, plants, grasses and fungi.
There are thought to be fewer than 150 eastern bongo left in the wild today. The biggest threats to them are hunting and the destruction of their habitat.
Our bongos are involved in the EAZA ex-situ breeding programme for this Critically Endangered species.
