Gabela Helmetshrike Prionops gabela is an endangered bird found only in western Angola. In November 2019 the first known nest of this bird was found by Arnon Dattner, near the community of Santa Ambuleia in north-western Angola. The nest, as well as the 5 territories of Gabela Helmetshrike found near the community, were protected by local bird-watching guides who worked with the local population to prevent fires, logging or hunting at these territories.
