The Saola

Saola Townhomes at Sloan’s Lake is named for the critically endangered species Saola. This gentle animal is often referred to as the Asian Unicorn.

“The Saola is found only in the Annamite Mountains of Laos and Vietnam. It is one of the most enigmatic animals in the world, and also one of the most threatened. Since the species’ scientific discovery in 1992, it has declined to a status of Critically Endangered and is now one of the most endangered mammals in the world. There are few anaimals as phylogentically distinctive and so threatened with extinction, yet with so little conservation attention.”
