Oasys MiniHollywood signed last week the renewal of an agreement with the CSIC for the conservation of four threatened species: dama gazelle (Nanger dama mhorr), Cuvier’s gazelle (Gazella cuvier), dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas neglecta) and aruís (Ammotragus lervia sahariensis).
This project began in 2001, together with the CSIC’s Arid Zones Experimental Station (EEZA), with the transfer to our zoological reserve of four Dorcas gazelles and four Cuvier’s gazelles. Nowadays, the park already houses a breeding group of dama gazelle, a group of male gazelle dama, a group of male dorcas gazelle and two male Cuvier’s gazelle.
The objective of this agreement is the optimal conservation of threatened animal species and subspecies, especially those mentioned above. Thus, Oasys MiniHollywood offers the necessary space, food and optimal health care. In addition, the park will bear the necessary expenses to maintain the best conditions and security and, of course, any need that may appear to each individual.
This agreement will have a duration of four years, being able to be extended again for a maximum of another four years.
In addition to this, Oasys MiniHollywood participates in multiple other projects for the captive breeding of extinct or seriously endangered species, as in this case, so that in the future it will be possible to reintroduce them in their free environment.
