Soemmerings Gazelle

Soemmerings Gazelle / Gazella soemmerringii berberana

The Soemmerings Gazelle is endemic to the Horn of Africa. Once they gathered in hundreds on open plains and made substantial seasonal migrations.

Today, they are seldom seen in herds larger than about 15. Hunting, overgrazing and habitat degradation by domestic stock are causes of decline to these large gazelles. Listed as VULNERABLE by IUCN. There are regular breeding successes at the AWWP for many years.
