Arabian Oryx The Arabian oryx or white oryx is a medium‐sized antelope with a distinct shoulder bump, long, straight horns, and a tufted tail. It is a bovid, and the smallest member of Oryx genus, native to desert and steep areas of the Arabian Peninsula. The Arabian oryx was extinct in the wild by the early 1970s, but was saved in zoos and private preserves and reintroduced into the wild starting in 1980.
In 1986, the Arabian oryx was classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List, and in 2011 it was the first animal to revert to Vulnerable status after previously being listed as extinct in the wild. It is listed in CITES Appendix I. In 2011, populations were estimated at over 1000 individuals in the wild, and 6000–7000 individuals in captivity worldwide.
A Qatari oryx named "Orry" was chosen as the mascot of the official game for the 2006 Asian Games in Doha and is shown on tail‐ wings of planes belonging to Middle Eastern airline Qatar Air‐ways.
