How many Arabian oryx are left in the world?
Sadly they are extinct due to hunting and unknown issues about drinking polluted water. Some scientists believe some are still alive but there is no evidence, none have been seen over the past decade and are considered extinct. Here is the story. In the 1st of October 2013, a scientist named John Bronhson discovered a baby Oryx and had a thought that this species had a second chance. Few helicopters were sent in search for these marvelous animals while the baby was taken to a wildlife zoo in Ras Al Khaimah, A dead carcass of a whole group of Oryx was found next to a polluted river with human chemicals in it. One Oryx survived and it was a baby who didn't drink water but drank it mother's milk. The scientists took the two babies hoping the population of the Oryx could rise again but, sadly, they were the same gender. They tried to breed them but it didn't work and one of them died. Hope this helped...
