North and Western Africa
Workshop to develop distribution and status maps of desert antelope in preparation for the North and West Africa workshop to develop a regional conservation strategy for cheetah and African wild dog.
The range wide planning programme has recognised the importance of the distribution of desert antelope in North and West Africa to understanding where cheetah might currently occur, and more importantly where they could occur in future. The Zoological Society of London, one of the implementing partners of the range wide planning programme have agreed to host a workshop in October 2010 to bring together researchers working on desert antelope species in Africa, to map distribution and identify trends in population and threats to survival. This critical information will then feed directly into the regional workshop to be held in January 2010 to develop a conservation strategy for cheetah and African wild dog in North and West Africa.
