The Red Deer subspecies, of El Feija National Park (Tunisia), is the last deer living in Africa. WWF Mediterranean organized a study programme on the biology and the status of this subspecies (Cervus elaphus barbarus), a conservation plan for the area, environmental education initiatives and operations for the use of natural resources by local communities. Through the help to local communities, which live together with the last deer, the project aims to improve the conservation of the area. The collaboration with our photographers took place during some research activities and census of deer population, documenting both to give visibility and to support the project.
