Protected Areas

Protected areas in Saudi Arabia (15 in number represent 4% of the country's area) server as in-situ seed banks that are strategically located for regeneration of overgrazed rangelands. A system of 103 protected areas that cover 10% of the country's area is planned and being considered.


They are important for conservation of biological diversity by protecting the existence of viable populations of key taxa of flora and fauna (hot spots).

​These areas represent species historical distribution as well as their continued existence through re introduction programs.
