Sahara Survivors, the Endangered Slender-horned Gazelle at the Naples Zoo

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens recently welcomed a trio of endangered gazelles native to the unforgiving and otherworldly dunes of the Sahara Desert. Known as slender-horned gazelles, as few as 250 of these elegant creatures may yet traverse northern Africa’s sand seas west of the Nile River. The new arrivals are part of a Species Survival Plan® for these endangered creatures. Visitors to Southwest Florida’s only accredited zoo can see these rare gazelles in the African Oasis exhibit living among Greater kudu and impala antelope.
