Saiga antelopes: the Ice Age survivors now in peril

Central Asian antelopes – the saiga – are one of the few animals to have survived the Ice Age.

Once prevalent from Siberia all the way to western Europe, today they’re a critically endangered species only found in parts of Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.

The BBC’s Abdujalil Abdurasulov has followed a scientific expedition attempting to save them from extinction.
