Big success ! The birth of a Somali Wild Ass, Equus africanus somalicus, for the first time in France in 1994 is for conservation of threatened species the biggest success registrated in La Reserve Africaine de Sigean. Each year, we count less than 10 births in the World. Since then we have quite one birth each year of this very rare species. Other dates of birth : 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2010 and 2013.
