ASG is heavily involved in efforts to save the last, tiny population of wild Addax. With funding from a IUCN SOS African Wildlife Initiative Rapid Action Grant, the ASG Co-Chairs undertook a mission to Niger in January 2020, in collaboration with the IUCN Regional Office for Central and West Africa for urgent discussions with the Government and local stakeholders. A mission report and recommendations were produced (see Resources page). Monthly calls have been held since than organised by the Global Species Programme, involving IUCN PACO), IUCN SOS, IUCN Business and Biodiversity Unit, and the staff of the IUCN China Office.
ASG worked on a major funding application with CMS and the two implanting partners for satellite collaring of a few addax to facilitate improved monitoring and anti-poaching.
