Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2008
Date Assessed: 2008-06-30

Reviewer(s): Mallon, D.P. (Antelope Red List Authority) & Hoffmann, M. (Global Mammal Assessment)
Listed as Least Concern as the population was estimated by East (1999) at more than 100,000 animals. Recent reports from Sudan suggest that White-eared Kobs survive in good numbers, despite years of civil war. An aerial survey carried out by WCS in 2007 produced a population estimate for part of southern Sudan of >753,0000. Nonetheless, there remains a need for a detailed assessment of the population status of this subspecies, and for improved protected of floodplains east of the Nile River.
