Arabian Oryx

FILE - In this undated file photo made available by the Abu Dhabi Environment Agency in 2007, Arabian Oryx gather on top of a dune after their recent release into the desert. The antelope made famous in Arabian poetry and by its associations with the unicorn legend had been hunted to near-extinction by 1972. But over the past three decades, it has staged a remarkable comeback through a program that got its start in the Arizona desert and has flourished under the united efforts of several Arabian Gulf countries.
