Sandscript #30 is out!

Dear readers,

We are really happy to introduce you to the 30th issue of Sandscript, the bi-annual publication of Sahara Conservation.

On this occasion, Sandscript has a new look, but also a new style: for the first time, you will be able to find in our magazine a thematic approach to conservation.

This issue is dedicated to the veterinary aspects of conservation and the invaluable contributions that veterinarians make to Sahara Conservation projects in Chad.

The range of veterinary expertise is extensive, from tele-anesthesia (darting animals for sedation) to safe translocation and transport of antelopes and gazelles, screening protocols and preventive medical treatments prior to reintroduction of species, to the study of emerging infectious diseases as part of the “One Health” approach.

We have put a lot of effort into this issue and hope you enjoy this new format. Please let us know about any future topics you would like to see addressed.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue!
