The role of international institutions in the restoration of saiga antelope populations

Irina Novak

Recent saiga conservation processes have been in place for over 20 years. Although the species is still categorised as critically endangered, there is no doubt that its state has considerably improved compared to the late 1990s. This is the result of numerous efforts that many people have invested in anti-poaching activities, development of the protected area network, implementation of conservation and educational projects, research and monitoring.
