Scimitar - Horned Oryx
Images captured at Marwell Wildlife, Hampshire
"Scimitar-horned oryx were one of the first species kept at Marwell, and features on the zoo's emblem. Marwell coordinates the European breeding programme for scimitar-horned oryx. The aim of this programme is to have a stable, genetically diverse population. Animals from this programme may then be donated to suitable release projects."
