1. Oryx

The White Oryx, in Hebrew called Re’em, were almost extinct during the 1970s, thankfully zoos and wildlife conservationists came to the rescue and were able to reintroduce the antelope back into the wild during the 1980s. While it’s no longer considered endangered, the White Oryx’s conservation status is still listed as vulnerable. Its elegant, long horns and white hue make it one of Israel’s most beautiful creatures.
