The conservation work in the Park done over the last 25 years has helped in the rejuvenation of a variety of plant and insect life, and hence in the provision of sympathetic habitats for an increasing variety of birds.
But the work needs constant support.

Five bird species found only in Ethiopia can be seen in the Park:

 

  • Abyssinian Catbird

  • Yellow-fronted Parrot

  • Ethiopian Siskin
