Mongolia’s 100 Springs of Life

While focussing on the critically endangered saiga antelope, the project strongly contributes to the conservation and promotion of valuable habitats by protecting natural springs to ensure meadows and pastureland for the saiga antelope and local herding families.

In the regional IUCN list the Mongolian saiga is listed as critically endangered because water sources are disappearing due to aridification, overgrazing and trampling of spring heads by livestock. The project aims to protect at least 100 water sources. At the same time, a coalition of communities and local authorities will be formed to ensure sustainable management of water resources, thus securing pastures for 15,000 Saiga antelopes and the livestock of 1,000 herder families.
