Arrival of new Somali Wild Ass stallions
Catrin Hammer, Curator of Mammals, AWWP, Qatar

After a preparation period of about a year, AWWP has finally received two wild ass stallions from Montpellier/France at the end of March 2008. This transaction was part of the European Endangered species breeding Program (EEP), in which AWWP participates. These stallions are unrelated to the existing group. We hope that 5-year-old “Hector” and 3-year-old “Agadou” will continue with the successful breeding of this very beautiful and highly endangered species at AWWP.
