The saiga antelope is a critically endangered species living in a damaged and fragile ecoregion. Their numbers have been decimated by hunting for their meat and horns, dropping from a population of more than 1 million in the 1970s to approximately 50,000 today. Conservation efforts have stopped much of the hunting, but illegal poaching and highly-skewed sex ratios driven by culling the males for horns continue to threaten the species.
