Saiga antelope, Saiga tatarica, are critically endangered nomadic antelope, which migrate up to 70 miles a day. The unusual shaped nose is thought to help the antelope breathe in warm air through cold winters, a time where they have a thick white coat, and to breathe clean air from dusty humid summers when they have a light, cinnamon brown coat. Considered to be a priority species by the WWF, they are classed as ‘one of the most ecologically, economically and/or culturally important species on our planet’, although their unusual appearance often means they are overlooked for fundraising and conservation efforts.
