You’ll see green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born
You’re never gonna see no unicorns
Excerpt from: “The Unicorn” by The Irish Rovers
If you thought Unicorns no longer existed, think again. The Arabian Oryx, the animal on which the Unicorn is thought to have been based, was extinct in the wild by 1970, the last one being killed by it’s greatest predator, Man. Had there not been healthy stocks in Wildlife Parks, Zoo’s and Private collections, that would have been the end.
But as with many wildlife species, Man the Predator has slowly forced onto the endangered list, the Arabian Oryx’s greatest saviour was once again Man. A captive breeding program introduced them back into the wild in the 1980’s, back where they originally came from. Oman, Suadi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Jordan, although the population in Oman has dropped significantly since 2008 due to the oil industry, which is a real shame. Have we not learned anything?
So if you want to see a real life Unicorn, you just need to go and visit one of these countries and trek out into the desert!
