Welcome to the website of the Oryx Project 

Understanding how oryx (Oryx g. gazella) and springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) select their resources and habitats in response to unpredictable climatic changes might help us to better understand the responses of wildlife species towards habitat desertification, a growing threat to many ecosystems in Africa and worldwide. In the Oryx Project, we aim to contribute to conservation and management of desert ungulates by supporting local communities in their conservation efforts, by developing management plans for sustainable land use, and by providing new insights into the dietary and spatial ecology of two charismatic and economically important wildlife species.
