The programme will work to support the Sahara-Sahelian Conservation Foundation on specific needs identified by them for Barbary sheep conservation. It will still need to be determined if this will be fundraising and/or education focused and if there is a link with development of sustainable hunting mechanisms.
In November 2021, the Aoudad EEP had 96 animals of the Ammotragus lervia sahariensis subspecies in 3 institutions. Approximately 650 individuals of other subspecies and hybrids are also kept within EAZA, which need to decrease slowly.
This work is supported by the European Union LIFE NGO funding programme. The European Union is not responsible for the views displayed in publications and/or in conjunction with the activities for which the grant is used.
