Nubian ibex in the Eastern Desert, Egypt

Paul R. Krausman, William W. Shaw

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In 1984, when the authors were working in the central part of Egypt's Eastern Desert, they found some large tracks and followed them. From the top of a sand dune, they had a brief but clear view of an adult male Nubian ibex. This unexpected sighting confirms that there is at least one population in this part of the Eastern Desert; the last report of ibex in the area was in 1927.
