Beira Antelope / Dorcatragus megalotis

 

 

The Beira Antelope inhabits mountainous areas and occurs only at the Horn of Africa, where it lives in small family groups. Competition with livestock for food and water resources, droughts and urbanization are the main threats to this very distinct species.

The Beira Antelope is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. The only captive breeding group is found at Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation. The successful breeding of this species has started in 2000 with 8 founder animals. The number of Beira Antelopes at AWWP reached its peak with 58 in 2005.
