24. Jackal shipment

New homes for our Golden Jackals
Catrin Hammer, Curator of Mammals, AWWP, Qatar

In January 2008, AWWP’s remaining five Golden jackals (Canis aureus) left Qatar. It was decided not continue keeping this species for the benefit of other species. The jackals were shipped to EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria) member institutions in Sharjah, Dubai, Holland and Germany.
