The saola is the world’s rarest large mammal. It hasn’t been recorded since a trail camera captured an image of one in 2013, but it is believed that this elusive species still resides in the steep terrain of the Annamite Mountains between Vietnam and Lao – there just hasn’t been a comprehensive search for it yet.

This is the challenge being undertaken by the Saola Foundation. If it is still in Lao, they intend to find it – but time is running out.
