A new book on the Critically Endangered dama gazelle has been published by Texas A&M University Press, with contributions from Marwell Wildlife on how best to conserve the European zoo population of dama gazelle to ensure a future for the species.
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.
Chawki Najjar, a young Tunisian veterinarian, joined Marwell Wildlife’s team in Tunisia as a volunteer during his last year studying Veterinary Medicine.
This weekend The Great Grevy’s Rally, a two-day photographic census of the remaining Grevy’s zebra populations, is being carried out by teams of conservationists, conservancy managers, community members and local and international citizen scientists. The results will help monitor the status and health of these inspiring animals.
