I think that this is just wonderful, that an impoverised country like Niger can do this, all they have to do now is keep the poachers out.

The addax surely is a most beautiful animal. More parkland is desperately needed as this area is very poor in natural forage and a great deal of acreage is necessary to support any sizable number of animals. More parkland is needed now to support even fewer animals every year. Anyone who would hunt or poach these creatures is committing a crime not only against them but against future generations of people who will only see these animals in books. We're driving everything into extinction.
