The Horn of Africa hosts around 104 larger mammals, of which twenty are either endemic, or near endemic. Ethiopia, with its spectacular and diverse landscapes, is home to 281 mammal species of which forty-five are considered endemic, though most are smaller mammals, shrews and rodents - larger mammals are typically considered to be at least squirrel sized.

Trevor Jenner's talk will focus on the larger mammals of Ethiopia, including some of the world's rarest endemics:

Examples of the impressive range of families of primates, carnivores, proboscids and ungulates in Ethiopia will be covered together with some of the smaller species like the hyraxes. Expect to see some magnificent photographs!

Trevor Jenner has had a multi-faceted career, including a bird and wildlife guide, which has entailed a host of travelling throughout the globe. His quest for birds and mammals has taken him on expeditions to many parts of the world including remote and dangerous places. A travel and natural history writer, Trevor's lifetime of trekking, writing, photographing and researching mammals has culminated in the recently published Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of the Horn of Africa.


Please reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
