"Operation Oryx" resurrects a myth
Operation Oryx was launched in 1962 to save the rarest animal in the world, the Arabian oryx. The animal, which once inhabited the deserts of Arabia and the Sinai, was bred in captivity in US nature reserves and zoos. The threat of extinction of the Arabian oryx was fostered by the belief that killing them could provide magical powers for man. At present, 12 oryx can be seen in its natural habitat under the protection of Harasis, the nomads of Oman. The success of this conservation movement will serve as inspiration and hope to the rest of the world.
