|Geographical Range||Northeastern Africa|
|Habitat||Semi-arid grasslands and open scrublands|
|Scientific Name||Gazella soemmerringii|
These graceful gazelles once ranged in herds of hundreds across northeast Africa's scrub and dry grasslands. Today they're reduced to a much smaller range, and now live in groups of only 15-20 animals. The reasons for their decline include overhunting and habitat destruction from overgrazing of livestock.
