The Arabian oryx (possibly the Biblical Re’em) was saved from extinction through a captive breeding program and reintroduction to the wild. Indeed, the entire species became extinct in Israel in the late 19th century and was revived with a few animals that were purchased in the US in the 1980s. Today, this magnificent species is thriving in Israel’s Arava desert.

Aren’t they just gorgeous?
