Saiga Conservation Alliance
Across the steppe and semi-arid deserts of Central Asia and Russia, the saiga antelope faces worse threats than the harsh climate. Over a 15 year period, the saiga population dwindled from millions to just the few hundred thousand surviving today due to extensive hunting for their meat and horns. The Saiga Conservation Alliance (SCA) protects saiga throughout their range and closely monitors herd health. SCA engages local communities heavily to build national pride in the saiga, incorporate them into cultural events, and teach young people about the future of saiga conservation. Recently, the saiga population has begun to slightly increase thanks in part to the efforts of SCA.
