Introducing LIFELINE 7 - Arabian Oryx
A conservation success story.
The Arabian Oryx was extinct in the wild due to hunting. In the 1980s conservationists re-introduced a few into the Al Wusta Reserve in Oman - the location of the last wild animal.
Now, after careful and consistent conservation work there is a healthy population of these elegant antelope.
The Ghosts of Arabia have returned.

The closest creature genetically to the elephant is the hyrax. Somewhat of a contrast in every way. They will be our closest remaining link to the elephant, if the present poaching crisis continues and we wipe elephants out of Africa' Julie Askew
