Monitoring Dama gazelles in northern Niger

The dama gazelle (Nanger dama) is one of the most endangered antelopes in the world with a population estimated at less than 300 individuals scattered across a handful of small isolated groups in Chad, Niger, and possibly Mali (RZSS & IUCN, 2014). This species is in the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered (IUCN 2016), as well as in Appendix I of CITES and the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS).

Chad Oryx Reintroduction Project: they are in great shape!


In August 2017 was the third release lead in Chad with the valued support of the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, and the Government of Chad. 


As a reminder, the objective of this reintroduction project is to build up a viable population of at least 500 animals, and hopefully confirm over the years the return of the scimitar-horned oryx back into the wild.


This summer, the number of animals reached 90, including 18 calves born in Chad.
