Total population numbers are estimated at 15,000-20,000 and probably stable over large areas of the range in Central African Republic and Cameroon where human population densities are low, although probably gradually declining across its entire range. Eastern Giant Eland are one of the most sought after antelope trophies and sustainable safari hunting is having a positive effect on the conservation of populations in many areas.
