The Saiga (Saiga tatarica) is a critically endangered, unbelievably fabulous species of antelope originally inhabiting a vast area of the Eurasian steppe zone from the foothills of theCarpathians and Caucasus into Dzungaria and Mongolia. 

Today, the populations have again shrunk enormously, as much as 95% in 15 years, and the saiga is classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. An estimated total number of 50,000 saigas survive today in Kalmykia, three areas of Kazakhstan and in two isolated areas of Mongolia.

These photos are from the facebook page of the Saiga Conservation Alliance - which you, naturally, should like and support.

Because I will be extremely upset if these stop existing. I’ll cry. I’ll throw things. I need these. Do it for me.
