Taita Apalis

BIRD IN DANGER

The Taita Apalis is a small songbird found only in Kenya: only in the forests of the Taita Hills.

And it can become Kenya’s first bird to become extinct if nothing is done to save its habitat.

Today fewer than 200 remain. It is therefore CRITICALLY ENDANGERED – threatened with extinction. If nothing is done, Kenya might lose this bird species forever.

What can we do to save the Taita Apalis?

Nature Kenya seeks to conserve the forest fragments that are the habitat of the Taita Apalis. This includes leasing a small natural forest and restoring degraded former forest.
