SOMALIA

Somalia has suffered war and instability for more than a quarter of a century and during that time its once plentiful wildlife has been destroyed. Elephants are reported to occasionally cross the border from Kenya, but there are no reliable surveys. Somalia joined the EPI in 2016. We hope this signals a new era for conservation after decades of tragic loss.
