Sahel & Sahara Interest Group 2023 meeting – Save the date!

Since 2001, the Sahel and Sahara Interest Group (SSIG) meeting has been an annual forum for everyone working in wildlife conservation within the arid areas of North Africa and the Middle East.

Facilitated by Sahara Conservation, the meeting provides an opportunity to bring people together to share ideas and projects, and to continue a strong tradition of collaboration on behalf of Sahel and Sahara wildlife and people.

For the first time since 2019, the meeting will be in-person!

It will be hosted the first week of May by the Estación Experimental de Zonas Áridas (EEZA-CSIC). Please mark your calendars for a dynamic 3-day meeting!

More details about the exact dates of the event, the call for abstracts and the registration procedure will be shared shortly.
