The never-ending plight for survival of the Arabian Oryx

The story of the Arabian Oryx (Oryx leucoryx) is well known to the nature conservation world. But it means a lot more to the people of Oman. After becoming extinct in the country, it took 10 years and an unprecedented international effort to bring it back to its native homeland.

It became the first example of a successful reintroduction of an extinct species into the wild.

After a promising start, their numbers are falling once more. Will it have a second chance to escape extinction?

Shooting location: Arabian Oryx Sanctuary, Sultanate of Oman.
