Giant sable population survey

Giant sable population survey

It was in 1908 that a new sub-species of sable antelope, the giant sable (Hippotragus niger variani), was described for the first time. It is the most magnificent and most famous of Angola's rich wildlife heritage, and is in fact unique to Angola (endemic sub-species). Among many other taxon, the giant sable was brought to the brink of extinction, due to the enormity of Angola's human tragedy. The Foundation is supporting the Kissama Foundation in Angola to carry out the monitoring of the remnant giant sable population in order to help the Government plan future conservation actions for this rare and precious animal.
