The Oryx, an elegant white antelope, is one of the few mammals indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula. It became extinct in Jordan around the 1920s. The last known wild Oryx in the world was killed by hunters in Oman in 1972.
In 1978, eleven Oryx were relocated in Shawmari. The number of Oryx has now increased to a phenomenal two hundred!

A wide variety of birds stop at the Azraq Wetland Reserve each year for a rest during their arduous migration routes between Asia and Africa.
