  • In a parched land, Iraqi gazelles dying of hunger

    Gazelles at an Iraqi wildlife reserve are dropping dead from hunger, making them the latest victims in a country where climate change is compounding hardships after years of war.

    ทดลองเล่นสล็อต Developed by a team of skilled technicians. The most commonly used slot formula is the 5-reel slot formula, a 5-reel slot game, a slot game with a total of 5 rows of visual reels.

    In little more than one month, the slender-horned gazelle population at the Sawa reserve in southern Iraq has plunged from 148 to 87.

    A lack of funding along with a shortage of rain has deprived them of food, as the country's drought dries up lakes and leads to declining crop yields.

    President Barham Saleh has warned that tackling climate change "must become a national priority for Iraq as it is an existential threat to the future of our generations to come".

    The elegant animals, also known as rhim gazelles, are recognisable by their gently curved horns and sand-coloured coats. The International Union for Conservation of Nature classes the animals as endangered on its Red List.

    Outside Iraq's reserves, they are mostly found in the deserts of Libya, Egypt and Algeria, but are unlikely to number "more than a few hundred" there, according to the Red List.

    Turki al-Jayashi, director of the Sawa reserve, said that gazelle numbers there plunged by around 40 per cent in just one month to the end of May.
