The Royal Commission for Al-Ula has allocated 20 million dollars to protect the Arabian leopard from extinction, and has identified the beautiful valley area in Sharaan as a natural reserve for it to reproduce.
According to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper, the authority has developed an international center for breeding the Arabian leopard for captive breeding programs, as there is currently a center for the breeding of the Arabian leopard in Taif.
The Al-Ula governorate is considered to be an authentic home to the endangered Arabian tiger, as about 250 adult tigers are still alive in the wild, including 15 tigers in Saudi Arabia at the Prince Saud Al-Faisal Center for Wildlife Research.
Last year, the authority signed a partnership with the “Panthera” organization with the aim of supporting the initiatives of international efforts to protect big cats, with the authority’s commitment to invest $ 20 million over 10 years, with a focus on the Arabian leopard.
