Congrats! Your spotting is being featured as a Project Noah Fun Fact!

Project Noah Fun Fact: Oryx is derived from a greek word that means a type of antelope. There are four different species of oryx: the Arabian oryx, scimitar, east African oryx and the gemsbok. The Arabian (aka white) oryx, is the smallest of the oryx species. Once critically endangered, it was the first animal to revert to Vulnerable status after previously being listed as extinct in the wild.Today there are over 1000 individuals in the wild, and over 6000–7000 individuals in captivity worldwide.

Welcome to Project Noah! Great spotting. Could you give us any more information about it? It should probably be in a different mission. If you search the missions, you will probably find a more suitable one for it. Look forward to seeing more of your photos.
