wall sculpture upcycled materials; varnish glue Saudi Gazelle was native to the northern and western parts of the Arabian peninsula, alongside Mountain Gazelle and Sand Gazelle. They were some of the most frequently depicted animals in the Neolithic art of the region. Saudi Gazelle has been declared extinct in 2008 due to over hunting and habitat degradation, but has likely disappeared at least a decade prior. There is limited evidence of some pure individual Saudi Gazelles surviving in captivity. Previously Saudi gazelle was thought to be a subspecies of Dorcas gazelle, however genetic research had confirmed them to be a separate and evolutionary significant species. Unfortunately this finding did not result in better conservation efforts and did not prevent their extinction. The populations of the two remaining gazelle species of the Arabian peninsula have been severely diminished over the last few decades as well. Urgent measures have to be taken before they too disappear from the planet. Conservation status: extinct. Cause of extinction: excessive hunting by humans, habitat loss. Lula is a female name from the region. Its meaning in Arabic is ‘pearl’
