Nearly 12,000 Critically Endangered saiga antelopes have been found dead over the last week in the Ural population in western Kazakhstan.
“This is a tragic and shocking event. It’s particularly unfortunate that the population was just emerging from an unusually harsh winter, and that those struck down are mostly females and this year’s calves,” said Prof. E.J. Milner-Gulland, Chair of the Saiga Conservation Alliance and a member of IUCN Species Survival Commission Antelope Specialist Group.
