The Saiga Conservation Alliance (SCA) is committed to saving the critically endangered saiga antelope from imminent extinction. We are a long-standing network of scientists and conservationists who work across saiga range states on grassroots projects informed by sound science. At the SCA we believe in bringing stakeholders together to emphasize human needs and to act as a catalyst for sustainable conservation solutions.

In 2014 the SCA recognised the dedication of the rangers of the Stepnoi Reserve – Kalmykia, Russia in our Award for Excellence in Saiga Protection
The Stepnoi State Nature Reserve covers an area of 119 thousand. Ha, established in 2000 it is one of the few places where a population of about 3,500 saigas can be seen almost all year round. The small, yet dedicated group of rangers feel very protective towards their saigas and endure some extreme conditions to keep them safe.
