The SVF Foundation in Newport, Rhode Island, in conjunction with Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, has been working on the Smithsonian & SVF Biodiversity Preservation Project. In Summer 2019 they gathered together their first batch of Karakuls for the rare breed cryopreservation project; rams and ewes were purchased for collection of semen, eggs, and embryos.
In order to make room for the 2020 batch of Karakuls, SVF needs to sell their 2019 Karakul stock. Sarah Bowley, Program Manager compiled a list, and Deborah, Alliance Registrar added a little info to hopefully make the selection process easier.
Support this project and see which Karakuls will fit your breeding program!
Sarah Bowley has made it clear that she is willing to negotiate to ensure animals are placed correctly into conservation-based flocks. Take a look at the list!
Contact Sarah Bowley, SVF Program Manager for prices!
