This award recognizes institutions that have reached significant propagation goals and have dedicated outstanding commitment to a single species.   ZAA is thrilled to present the Long Term Commitment and Significant Propagation of a Single Species Award to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center for their work with addax. Fossil Rim has housed addax since 1970. With a main herd that currently consists of 50+ animals living on 400+ acres, Fossil Rim has recorded over 700 births!

Some of the many accomplishments during the past 50 years include: Assisted in DNA analysis and herd management for multiple male groups, worked on artificial insemination projects, body conditioning studies, modeled numerous population scenarios, and focused for a paper on blood parameters.  Fossil Rim also participated in the release of a pilot group of 15 Addax in Chad.
