Changes in the Executive Committee and the Articles of Association

The Executive Committee allows you to inform about change in its composition.

We thank our long-term co-worker Pavla Junkova Vymyslicka for everything she managed to do for both the association and the Derby elands and we wish her a lot of achievements in her further working. Katerina Stochlova, a Phd. student at the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences, was newly elected as the eight member of the Executive Committee. She is interested in genetic studies in antelopes.

Due to personal changes in the association, the Executive Committee decided about adjustment of the Articles. New version is available here.

The NGO Derbianus Conservation (former Derbianus CSAW) was founded by a group of experts from the Institute of Tropics and Subtropics, Czech University of Live Sciences Prague, in 2010 to continue a series of the projects of Czech-Senegalese cooperation running from 2000.

The main activities of Derbianus Coservation are focused on the conservation programme of Western Derby Eland (Taurotragus derbianus derbianus) in Senegal. For more informaton see section Conservation Programme

Since 2012 the Western Derby Eland Conservation Programme proudly bears the brand of WAZA (World Association of Zoos and Aquariums).

In 2015, we became an associate member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).
