EVENT IS SOLD OUT
Scimitar-horned oryx (Oryx dammah), also known as the Sahara oryx, is now extinct in the wild.
It formerly inhabited all of North Africa. Its decline began as a result of climate change, and later it was hunted extensively for its horns. The unicorn myth may have originated from sightings of a scimitar oryx with a broken horn.
These elegant creatures are part of the Zoo's Species Survival Plan (SSP), which helps to ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums, most of which are threatened or endangered in the wild. This program also helps maintain healthy and genetically diverse animal populations within the zoo community.
Come and see them roam the savanna along with giraffe, zebra, bongo and more!
