Calling all people with 15 minutes to spare! 


I am conducting a study looking at the accuracy of visual identification of bongo antelope and my online survey has just gone live.  I understand this is a busy time of the year for all of us but would be forever indebted if you could take a few moments to complete the survey, which is accessible by clicking the link below.

It should not take up more than 15 minutes of your time and features nice pictures of a highly endangered and breathtakingly beautiful stripy, ginger antelope.
FYI my findings will be used to advise wild monitoring strategies in Kenya so it also has tangible conservation benefits.  Whoop!

Done! :) Tried my bestI don’t know if it will help your study or not, but the way I identified them was by the thickness of the cheek spots, how dim or pronounced the white nose-stripe was, the thickness and how curled the horns were, thickness and fading of stripes, any visible pock marks or scars, how far back the stripes went on their flanks, and any unique wiggles in their back stripes.

couldn’t get past second question due to gender restrictions. good luck

Hey! I’ve just been informed that an ‘other’ option has been added for those who don’t identify with binary genders. Hope that helps and thanks for letting us know!

Guys, if you have a few minutes then this is some worthwhile research that my friend is conducting. Please take a look and share it  :)
