Doha, Qatar


Among the most emblematic animals in Qatar, the Arabian oryx is probably the most incredible one. In 1972 the last wild oryx were killed in Oman. Fortunately the Phoenix zoo in USA bred a few Arabian oryx and finally reintroduced some in the Arabian peninsula. Today there are about 1,000 wild oryx and 7,000 semi-free oryx like the ones in Al Shahaniya near Doha. Poaching remains high on the wild population especially in Oman.
