Why did >200,000 saigas die in less than 2 weeks?

In May 2015, huge numbers of the critically endangered saiga antelope were found dead in their calving areas, in an unprecedented mass mortality event. In this talk I describe the detective work of our interdisciplinary team in trying to understand what happened, a mystery tale which takes in veterinary analysis, climate modelling, ecology and the life history of the species.
