As I've needed to once again go into my Oryx archives I've discovered that this one has not appeared on EPZ in the past so here it is.
They were extinct in the wild by about the mid 60's although they obviously survived in captivity.
I remember being told that there's now about 1000 in the wild and another 7000 in captivity.
They continue to be classed as an endangered species.
