First off I would like to thank the following people for kindly donating to our work here. As I said before it is these donations which make the work possible to continue here. So thanks to Muriel T., Antonio C, and one “anonymous.” The money will go directly to maintaining work on conserving forest elephants.

This week the clearing has been very calm with the increased anti poaching activity in the area. The area outside of the bai has always been under pressure from hunting so now at least there ia a bit of a reprieve for this area. During the months of April and May there have been an increase in the number of bongo we have been seeing and during about ten days we were seeing more than 30 each day. They sit and ruminate at the far end of clearing in a big group for most of the afternoon and are occasionally chased or challenged by elephants. Among the group were two male bongos who would spend time in close proximity sitting in a puddle together.

    Is that a picture of Tess 111, with her precious baby? These bongo are very striking. We hope the bai can be a safe haven, for all these beautiful and very interesting creatures. Thank you for making this possible.
