Baby Dama Gazelle -
Critically Endangered
Canon EOS 30D

The Dama Gazelle (Nanger dama formerly Gazella dama), also known as the Addra Gazelle, is a species of gazelle. It lives in Africa in the Sahara desert and migrates south in search of food during the dry season. After the rains return and the desert plants turn green, they move north back to the Sahara. Poaching and destruction of their habitat have greatly diminished their numbers, and they no longer live in large herds.

It is white with a tannish-brown head and neck. The Dama Gazelle also has a subspecies, the Mhorr Gazelle, Nanger dama mhorr, which is extinct in the wild. Its numbers have fallen by 80% over the last decade, and the Dama Gazelle is now listed as Critically Endangered, though there are still 2000 left. They occur in poor countries and little action is taken to protect the species, the national parks are not well guarded and poachings still occur. Captive populations are managed in zoos in Africa and America.
