The Saiga antelope | Kazakhstan

The Saiga antelope is a critically endangered antelope which during antiquity inhabited a vast area of the Eurasian steppe. Today this species is only found in one region in Russia and three areas in Kazakhstan.

Saryarka – Steppe and Lakes of Northern Kazakhstan is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The 200,000 ha Central Asian steppe areas included in the property provide a valuable refuge for over half the species of the region’s steppe flora, a number of threatened bird species and the critically endangered Saiga antelope.
