DID YOU KNOW that the Saiga Antelope is now extinct within China’s borders?

The current worldwide population of these long-nosed, migratory grazers stands at 81,000—marking one of the most sudden and dramatic population crashes of a large mammal on record worldwide.

The Steppe Conservation and Management Project (SCMP) was formed as a response to these losses. The project is supporting the government of Kazakhstan to expand and manage its protected areas within the steppe zone. Due to coordinated project intervention, the main Kazakh population of this enigmatic, Critically Endangered species is now recovering steadily.

DID YOU KNOW that although DDT is a cheap and fast method in wiping out the mosquitos that spread malaria, it is a serious threat to human health and environmental biodiversity?

In 2004, the GEF funded nearly US$ 7.5 million for a regional project implemented by the UNEP and WHO in Mexico and Central America, training more than 200 communities to control malaria without using DDT.

Alternatives methods include preventing mosquito from multiplying by draining stagnant water, repelling mosquitoes with plants, using bed nets and mesh screens on windows and doors, etc.

DID YOU KNOW that within Asia, 59% of water-bird populations are declining?

Across vast portions of Asia, escalating human demand on limited water supplies, as well as land, are leading to the loss and degradation of wetlands upon which both humans and waterbirds depend. This relationship linking water, wetlands, wildlife, and people’s welfare has been a core theme of the Siberian Crane Wetland Project (SCWP).
