Arabian Oryx Sanctuary
Don't waste a moment in planning a visit to Oman's Arabian Oryx Sanctuary, the only UNESCO-listed site ever removed from the world-renowned register. Extinct in the wild, this is the last remaining free-range habitat of the Arabian oryx. The Omani's reduced the size of the reserve by 90% for oil prospecting, leaving only a handful of breeding pairs to perpetuate the species. If the past few years is any indication of what is to come, then the clock is surely ticking for these gentle beasts of the desert. It is a poignant story that may lead to an inevitable conclusion - unless something unforeseen steps in to change their fate.
