Photo by @amivitale A giraffe browses alongside cattle in outside of Doulouwal Peulh, Niger - a village about 50 miles outside of the capital of Niamey where people live side by side with the endangered West African giraffe in the country's government-defined Giraffe Zone. In order to help the longterm survival prospects of this subspecies, the Nigerien government with help from a team from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation ( @giraffe_conservation ) and Sahara Conservation Fund recently worked together to translocate eight giraffe from the Giraffe Zone to the Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve, where the giraffe had been absent for 50 years. The translocation was a success and all are doing wonderfully.

Photo by @amivitale Three young West African giraffe graze outside of Doulouwal Peulh, Niger - a village about 50 miles outside of the capital of Niamey where people live side by side with the endangered West African giraffe in the country's government-defined Giraffe Zone. Female giraffes give birth standing up and newborns are welcomed to the world with an almost five foot drop to the ground! However, within 30 minutes they are standing, and only hours later they are able to run with their mothers. At one point, the range of West African giraffe stretched across the Sahel, from Nigeria to Senegal. Illegal hunting, climate change and habitat loss all contributed to the population's decline, and by the mid-90's, only 49 remained, in this zone. Today, while still highly threatened, thanks to heroic conservation efforts, they number 600. In December, in order to help the longterm survival prospects of this subspecies, the Nigerien government with help from a team from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation ( @giraffe_conservation ) and Sahara Conservation Fund worked together to translocate eight giraffe from the Giraffe Zone to the Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve.

Photo by @amivitale West African giraffe browse in the early morning hours in Niger's Giraffe Zone, a government-defined region where humans and giraffe coexist. Only 600 of the highly endangered West African giraffe exist in the world, so the government of Niger launched an ambitious plan to create a satellite population of the highly endangered species. With the help of Giraffe Conservation Foundation and Sahara Conservation Fund, eight animals were translocated Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve where they had been absent for 50 years. It was the first conservation effort of its kind for the West African subspecies.

Po pěti letech plánování, měsících příprav a týdnech tvrdé práce, nastal velký ochranářský úspěch - založení nové populace vzácných žiraf západoafrických v Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve v Nigeru. Republika Niger je jediná země, která se může pyšnit výskytem tohoto poddruhu. V polovině 90. let 20. století byly jejich počty odhadovány na pouhých 50 jedinců! Nyní se díky snahám vlády a nevládních organizací jejich populace ve volné přírodě vyšplhala 600 jedinců. GCF společně s vládou Nigeru, Sahara Conservation Fund a dalšími partnery provedla vůbec první převoz žiraf v západní Africe. Jedním z partnerů byla i naše fakulta, která k převozům vyslala svou studentku Kateřina Gašparová, ta se připojila k týmu během převozu a následně strávila měsíc s osmi žirafami v jejich novém domově v rezervaci. Kateřina o své cestě řekla: "Připojit se k takto významnému projektu bylo pro mě jako splnění snu. Sběr dat pro mou disertační práci byla příjemná aktivita, a chvíle, které jsem mohla strávit v blízkosti takto vzácných a půvabných zvířat jsem si velice užila." To, jak to celé probíhalo můžete vidět v krátkém filmu níže ******************************************** T.G.I.F. - ThanksGiraffe It's Friday! #OperationSahelGiraffe 8: After years of planning, months of preparation and weeks of hard work all came together: what an amazing #conservation success.

#Didyouknow that the scimitar-horned oryx has been classified as extinct in the wild since 2000? But hope is NOT lost! In 2016, a small herd was reintroduced into Chad as part of an ongoing reintroduction program spearheaded by the Sahara Conservation Fund and the Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi. Animals from conservation organizations all over the world were brought in to establish a world herd and for reintroduction! Facilities like @fossilrim contributed animals and ground-breaking research on radio collars to help this program succeed! In 2017, the first wild scimitar-horned oryx calf was born!! Where there is a will, there is hope! #scimitarhornedoryx #antelope #zoossavingspecies #saharaconservationfund #fossilrimwildlifecenter #conservation #conservationsuccess #wildlife #wildlifephotography

#Picture Name: At Ease This is a #portrait of the #scimitarhornedoryx that I made in #summer of 2017 at the @africanlionsafari I named this picture 'At Ease' because this #Oryx does not have to guard itself in this #sanctuary from human predation the( #humanpredator ) and #climatechange that was largely responsible for its ' #extinction in the #wild ' in 2000. As I drove leisurely through the park looking for singular photo opportunities ( #photoopportunity ), I found this Oryx at just about the right spot grazing on succulent green grass. Chewing, it looked up making line of sight contact with my camera.

Follow @endextinction for more info on endangered species 💕 *Post by End Extinction* For the first time in 30 years, Scimitar-horned Oryx are back in the wild!!! Thanks to an incredibly successful captive breeding program, this species is finally back in the wild in its native homeland of Chad. Scimitar-horned Oryx are listed as "Extinct in the Wild", due to over-hunting and habitat loss. The release of this herd is therefore incredibly exciting, and full congratulations go to the Sahara Conservation Fund for making this happen! #EndExtinction #ScimitarHornedOryx #SaharaConservationFund

My Zoo supports twenty five different #conservation projects in seventeen countries, one of which is the #SaharaConservationFund , which is devoted to helping these incredible, desert adapted antelope. We have also played a role in the #speciessurvivalplan , or #SSP , working to help boost Addax populations in #Zoos !

The team from Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF ) is in Abu Dhabi with a delegation from Chad's Environment Ministry led by the Minister, HE Moustapha Ali Alifei. Thuraya terminals and network are playing a key role in one of SCF’s most ambitious projects to date – re-introduce the scimitar-horned oryx into the wild in central Chad. The work is spearheaded by the Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi (EAD ) & the Government of Chad, with the support of SCF and its partners. Once the project is up and running, SCF will continue to rely on Thuraya for essential communications and security. #Africa #Conservation #Sahara #SaharaConservationFund #Chad #Oryx #AbuDhabi #UAE #satcom #satellite #communications #Thuraya #wildlifeconservation #savewildlife  #saveandimprovelives #instagood #followme #like4like #instadaily #smile #instapic #instalike #amazing #bestoftheday #instagram #cool #photo #webstagram #instacool #instafollow

Braving rough weather and terrain, our friends at Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF ) have successfully concluded their field trip to Central Chad. Needless to say, Thuraya was the team's lifeline to the outside world. Thuraya terminals will play a key role in one of SCF's most ambitious projects to date - a massive international collaboration to re-introduce the scimitar-horned oryx into the wild in Central Chad. #Thuraya #satcom #satellite #Sahara #Conservation #SaharaConservationFund #Chad #wildlife #communications #satellitephone #satelliteinternet  #UAE

Thuraya is helping Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF ) educate the public about the need for protecting the fragile Sub-Saharan ecosystem that is home to many rare animals and birds.

Look, who's here?!! This striking photograph was shared by the Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF ) project team all the way from Africa using Thuraya ‪‎satellite‬ ‪communications‬ equipment. We are happy to partner with Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF ) again, as they conduct further research in Niger and elsewhere in the Sub-Saharan Africa. The SCF team is using the Thuraya ‪‎SatSleeve‬ satellite adaptor and the XT ‪satellite phones‬ to reach out to their families and well-wishers. For secure, real-time data transfer and internet browsing, they have the Thuraya IP ‪‎broadband‬ terminal. Thuraya keeps isolated communities connected to the rest of the world. We wish SCF all the very best ☺☺ #satcom#satellite #satellitephone #satphone #thuraya #satellitebroadband #satelliteinternet #broadban #communications #SaharaConservationFund #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #Africa #Sub_Sahara #Niger #SatSleeve #IP #internetprotocol #DataTransfer  #InstaFitApp
