Crisis Fundraising Appeal

A sudden, mysterious outbreak of disease currently threatens the saiga’s existence.

More than 120,000 saigas have been confirmed dead in central Kazakhstan; more than a third of the global population.

This is a major blow for conservation efforts given that saigas have in the past ten years only just started to recover from a global population size of less than 50,000 animals following a 95% crash in numbers.

Please help us raise funds to carry out urgent actions to save saigas

Saigas are one of the most threatened species on the planet. Their numbers declined by 95% in just 15 years.

The Saiga Conservation Alliance (SCA) is committed to saving the critically endangered saiga antelope from imminent extinction. We are a long-standing network of scientists and conservationists who work across saiga range states on grassroots projects informed by sound science. At the SCA we believe in bringing stakeholders together to emphasize human needs and to act as a catalyst for sustainable conservation solutions.
Donations are crucial to the SCA. If you would like to support our work, please click here.
