The Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy is a rehabilitation place for animals. It was originally formed by American Zoological institutions to preserve the Bongo; in collaboration with the Bongo Species Survival plan. Originally, 18 were brought to the conservancy and since then orphaned animals have been adapted and rehabilitated before their release into wildlife. During rehabilitation, the staff ensures there’s little human interference especially with the newborns to facilitate their adaptation to the natural environment. The natural water from Mount Kenya and vegetation they are exposed to also facilitates their adaptation process. To mention a few, animals under rehabilitation include monkeys, tortoise and Secretary birds.
