A New Day

An Arabian Oryx (Oryx leucoryx) welcomes a new day in the United Arab Emirates. “I was racing time to get from my hotel in Dubai to the Margham Desert before sunrise to get this photo [of the] oryx in [its] natural environment,” photographer Ali Faisal Al-Houti writes. Though the animals faced extinction in the early 1970s when only six remained in the wild, their numbers have dramatically increased thanks to breeding programs and conservation efforts.
