Wildlife Photography | New Bontebok at the Nashville Zoo
I'm so excited to have a Bontebok at the Nashville Zoo! Isn't she beautiful? You can find her in the exhibit with the zebra, eland and ostrich. The Bontebok was historically confined to the coastal plain of the Western Cape, South Africa, where overhunting reduced it from locally abundant to the verge of extinction. They were saved from extinction in the mid-19th century by a few Cape farming families who protected the small remnant populations. From a low of less than 20 animals in the original Bontebok National Park (established near Bredasdorp in 1931), the population of this antelope has gradually recovered.
