Critically Endangered Eastern Bongo Born in Florida

Have you ever heard of a bongo? According to Wikipedia, the bongo is the third-largest antelope in the world, and comes in two species: the western bongo is a near-threatened species, and the eastern bongo has a native habitat that consists of only a few mountains in Kenya. It is critically endangered, and there are more in zoos than in the wild. The Naples Zoo welcomed the birth of a new eastern bongo in January. The female calf’s name is Amali, which means “hope” in Swahili. Read about bongos and the breeding program trying to save them from extinction at ZooBorns.
