RIYADH: Mohammed Qurban, the CEO of the National Center for Wildlife, has said that Saudi Arabia has designated 18.10 percent of its land and 6.48 percent of its marine habitats as protected areas.

He made the comments at the first Hima protected areas forum in Riyadh on Sunday, where experts had gathered to discuss Saudi Arabia’s environmental progress during a panel called “Achieving the 30 percent by 2030 Target for Terrestrial and Marine Protected Areas: Aligning International and National Efforts.”

Effective conservation efforts must involve collaboration between the private and public sectors, said Deputy Minister Osama Faqeeha. (AN photo by Abdulrahman Alnajim)
