The Saola is probably the most endangered mammal in the world, but it’s gotten a fraction of the attention of more ‘famous’ species like tigers and elephants.
It is falling through the cracks to extinction. But scientists know how to save it – they just need some help.
A group of conservationists have put together one of the most specialised rescue teams ever seen, integrating Indigenous wildlife trackers, specially-trained detection dogs (who we helped fund last year!), and cutting-edge DNA technology.
It’s the last and best shot to find enough Saola to establish a breeding program – and bring the species back from the brink. But the team urgently needs funding to get into the field.
It’s sad to think we’d let the Saola go extinct just because it’s not as famous as elephants. Can you chip in to save it from the edge of extinction – and protect wild places everywhere?
