A group of 85 endangered animals have just been relocated into the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Royal Reserve, the largest nature reserve in Saudi Arabia.

The animals - which included 20 Arabian oryxes, 40 Arabian gazelles, six Nubian ibexes and six mountain gazelles - were rehoused from the National Center for Wildlife, an initiative dedicated to reintroduction, rehabilitation, and release of endangered species to enrich biodiversity in Saudi Arabia.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman Royal Reserve also reintroduced several rehabilitated avian species, including four steppe eagles, four griffon vultures, a lappet-faced vulture, and four pharaoh eagle owls.
