Dear friends and colleagues,

The Steering Committee of the Saiga Conservation Alliance met in Ulaanbaatar on 11th September 2010 to consider the applications for this year's Small Grants. The competition was generously supported by CIC and the Wildlife Conservation Network.

The SCA Small Grants Competition supports grassroots projects and builds capacity of those working to implement the priority actions of the Medium Term Work Programme of the MOU on saiga conservation under the Convention on Migratory Species.

This year's winners were:

Fenglian Li (China) Saiga trade market monitoring, outreach campaign and law enforcement support for TCM in Guangzhou, China

Gunbat Gundensambuu and Buuveibaatar Bayarbaatar (Mongolia) Food habits and overlaps between livestock and Mongolian saiga

Aizada Nurumbetova (Uzbekistan) Training of women in skills of workmanship and needlework to develop alternative livelihood sources on the Ustiurt Plateau, Uzbekistan

Pavel Amosov (Russia) Saiga status and its conservation during migration in the vicinity of the Baskunchak lake

The Saiga Conservation Alliance offers its hearty congratulations to this year's winners, who represent the great diversity and creativity of conservation activities for saigas range-wide.

With best wishes,

Professor E.J. Milner-Gulland
Chair, Saiga Conservation Alliance
