We are pleased to report the inclusion in the sixth edition of Global Reintroduction Perspectives, published by the IUCN SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group, of a case study submitted by Marwell Wildlife on reintroduction efforts for addax in Djebil National Park, Tunisia.
In 2017 Marwell Wildlife began a 3-year project with Al Ain Zoo, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, San Diego Zoo Global and the Tunisian Direction Générale des Forêts to evaluate the genetic diversity of addax Addax nasomaculatus across global ex-situ populations and those reintroduced to Tunisia. The year one progress report for this project is now available from our publications-technical & project reports page.
