Dwarfed by the vast expanse of the red dunes of the desert, a single Arabian Sand Gazelle walks alone. Unlike the great herds of his North African kin, the Arabian Sand Gazelle tends to be more solitary, living in small family groups. This species’ conservation status is considered Vulnerable in the wild, with habitat loss causing the great herds to be reserved for captivity and breeding programs.
The evocative sight of a single set of tracks offers a choice; if there is nothing to follow, which way will you lead? That may be the question this intrepid Sand Gazelle asks as he moves through the desert sands alone.
