Joint efforts to save an emblematic species in North AfricaApril 09, 2018
Since 2012, IUCN-Med has been collaborating with Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia to develop a conservation strategy for threatened species, of which the Cuvier’s gazelle (Gazella cuvieri). This strategy, developed with the support of MAVA, aims at establishing sustainable and connected populations of the Cuvier’s gazelle by 2050. The strategy is available in French here.
Beyond the technical aspect of this strategy, its success is due to the willingness of the three countries to develop together a regional strategy for the Maghreb, each working in coordination with various national institutions. Thanks to this cross-border collaboration, conservation in the Maghreb area has been reinforced and made more sustainable.
