No scimitar oryxes have been seen in the wild since 1983. It is believed to be extinct in the wild. It survives thanks to a few thousand individuals in captivity, in reserves close to their natural habitat.
Extinct in the wild (EW)
Unlike the addax, the scimitar oryx would never be found in the real desert. It doesn’t stray from the savannahs, steppes and semi-desert.
