Help save the Taita Apalis from extinction

The Taita Apalis (Apalis fuscigularis) is one of the rarest birds in the world living only in the forest fragments at the tops of the Taita Hills in southeastern Kenya. It is considered Critically Endangered in the IUCN Red List because it has a tiny occupied range of 500 hectares. The very small population of the Taita Apalis has consequently been fragmented into extremely small sub-populations and may consist of only 100-150 individuals.
