A young female Mountain reedbuck.
The NNP population of this uncommon antelope (30-40 individuals max) poses the question: how is genetic viability ensured in such a small population?
This population has existed from the 1960’s up until the present on the rocky upper reaches of the Sosian Valley.
A second species of reedbuck (Bohor) is more plentiful & widespread elsewhere in the Park.
