eintroduction of Dama gazelle

The Mohrr Gazelle (Gazella dama mohrr), a sub-species of the dama gazelle is one of the rarest and most beautiful animals in the world. In the past, it was widespread in Western Sahara. By 1930, it had practically disappeared. The last known specimens were probably shot in 1968. Fortunately, the Kingdom of Morocco had sent 10 gazelles, caught in the wild, to Spain for safekeeping in 1960. At the request of the Kingdom of Morocco to the CIC, the Foundation negotiated the gift by the Experimental Station of Arid Zones, Almeria, Spain, of 3 animals which, together with another 3 given to the CIC by Hellabrunn Park of Munich, were released in the R'Mila Royal Reserve, near Marrakech in 1992. In 1996, the reintroduction was considered a success as, after the third generation, 17 dama gazelles were grazing in the Royal Reserve. Wetland Reserve of Merdja-Zerga Morocco (1984) In collaboration with the CIC, and in agreement with the Moroccan Authorities, the Foundation sent engineers from France for an initiation to the management of wetlands, identification and census of migratory birds. Material assistance was provided to delimit the Reserve.
