Najran governor launches first phase of Saudi project to restore wildlife in reserve

NAJRAN: Najran Gov. Prince Jalawi bin Abdul Aziz has launched a project on Thursday to restore wildlife in the Uruq Bani Ma’arid Reserve.
He said during the launch: “We live among the efforts to preserve and develop wildlife, both animal and plant life; we look at the grace and security that God had granted us, so we are sparing no effort to protect the animals and plants in a disturbed region, where some of its areas are witnessing the most cruel images of abuse of man and humanity, and a violation of religion, soul, mind, honor and money.”
Prince Jalawi stressed the importance of the achievements of the Saudi Wildlife Commission, which attempts to overcome all obstacles to confront imminent dangers and restore the ecological balance.
He released a group of Arabian oryxes, goitered gazelles, Edmi antelopes, houbaras, and ostriches. It is the first phase of the largest project to restore wildlife since establishing the Saudi Wildlife Commission 30 years ago.
The vice president of the commission, Dr. Hani Tatwani, said that the commission aims to enhance its role in developing and executing plans to confront the dangers facing wildlife, both in the sea and on land. It also endeavors to rehabilitate the near-extinct species and those which are endangered.
There will be restoration of wildlife in five different reserves in Harra Al-Harra, Khanafah, Al Tabiq, Taysiyya, and Awal.
At the end of the launch, the Saudi Wildlife Commission staged three presentations about the King Khaled Wildlife Research Center in Thamamah.
