Arabian Oryx

Arabian Oryx / Oryx leucoryx

The Arabian Oryx is the largest desert antelope and one of the most distinctive antelopes at all. Once widespread all over the Arabian Peninsula they were driven close to extinction in the late 1950’s due to over hunting. An international initiative saved a breeding stock in captivity.

AWWP started breeding this species in 2003. Our population consists of EEP animals, from the Zoo’s of Berlin, Rotterdam and Lisbon.
