Reebok's antelope namesake on verge of disappearing
World's largest antelope in trouble
The world's largest antelope, the giant eland - previously assessed as Least Concern - is now Vulnerable. Its estimated global population is between 12,000 and 14,000 at most, with fewer than 10,000 mature animals. This species is declining due to poaching for bushmeat, encroachment into protected areas and expansion of agriculture and livestock grazing.
