Remarkable success has been achieved in the UAE with captive breeding of Arabian oryx since a few animals were taken from the last remaining wild herd at the instruction of Sheikh Zayed in the early 1960s. While once the species was on the brink of extinction, its future is now assured, and although re-introduction programmes remain fraught with problems none are insurmountable. Breeding loans are arranged with reputable overseas institutes and an international secretariat working on the conservation of Arabian oryx was established in Abu Dhabi under the aegis of Abu Dhabi’s EAD.

The islands off Abu Dhabi emirate, especially Sir Bani Yas (a wildlife resort), are havens for several thousand gazelle, which are provided with fodder but are free to roam where they like and are breeding in significant numbers. Considerable success in breeding Arabian leopard and tahr has also been achieved at the Breeding Centre for Endangered Arabian Wildlife in Sharjah. The National Avian Research Centre (NARC), a unit of EAD, has been successfully rearing houbara bustard, the favourite prey of falconers, in captivity and has also begun releasing them into the wild.
