50c WWF Oribi: this small antelope (just over 2 feet tall at shoulder) has one of the widest distributions of any savannah dwelling ungulate. It is found virtualy throughout Sub-Saharan AFrica, from Senegal to Kenya to southern Africa. They are found in pairs or small groups, avoiding larger herds as other antelopes do. The oribi is the subject of an intensive WWF project to monitor captive-bred animals released into protected areas, to gather data on their habitat use and home ranges.
