Distribution and status of the striped hyena Hyaena hyaena (Linnaeus, 1758) (Mammalia, Hyaenidae) in Algeria

Abstract : The striped hyena Hyaena hyaena is listed "Vulnerable" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in the Mediterranean region as its population and range are decreasing in most countries. In Algeria, the distribution and status of this species have not been reviewed for nearly 30 years. A field survey was conducted during the last 10 years in many regions and suitable habitats in order to update this information. Our results show that the striped hyena was eradicated from some northern areas of its former range, but still occurs in most regions of Algeria. Causes of mortality are reported and conservation measures are suggested in order to keep sustainable populations.
