ASAP Species That We Work On
What We Do
Our Mission is to save Saola in the wild, and to conserve other threatened wildlife in the forest of the Annamite Mountains
We support the IUCN One Plan for saving Saola from extinction, as endorsed by the IUCN Saola Working Group.
We will support the One Plan initially through a focus on two urgent priorities:
- Help recruit the substantial funding necessary for a comprehensive, successful implementation of the Saola One Plan.
- Support, technically and financially, an intensive search for surviving Saolas in the wild, mainly in Laos (an essential first step in a successful conservation breeding program for the species).
Saola, discovered in 1992, is one of the world’s most endangered land mammals with fewer than 100 thought to remain in the wild. Saving Saola in the wild requires capturing individuals while there is still time and using them to establish a conservation breeding program.
The race to save Saola is one of the highest priority conservation challenges of our time, requiring an unprecedented level of global support and cooperation
