Reedbuck – Common, Boher and Mountain

The Reedbuck is the name given to 3 closely related species, all in the same genus Redunca.

The Southern reedbuck is found from Gabon and Tanzania in the north, right down to South africa. While there is not a clear number of how many survive, given the species is least concern, it is likely to be much higher than that of the mountain reedbuk.

The Boher reedbuck is found through Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda. Essentially Equatorial Africa. While estimates for the whole population are hard to find, the whole population is thought to be well in excess of 100,000. There are larger numbers to be found in East and Central Africa, than there are in the west of the continent.

The mountain reedbuck is found throughout Sub-saharan Africa. It has a population of around 36,000.

Below is a list of any articles that mention the reedbuck species (if any). As the blog continues, these will be added to.
