King Salman Nature Reserve releases 65 Reem gazelles in Al-Khanfa
In partnership with the Wildlife Development and Environmental Security Center, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority released 65 Reem gazelles in the Al-Khanfa Nature Reserve.
The authority aims for collaboration and integration in the development of wildlife and biodiversity, as well as the restoration of the reserve’s natural balance.
The reserve’s numerous release efforts are part of a national program for wild animal release and resettlement in reserves and national parks.
In the presence of some officials and residents of the region, Abdullah bin Ahmed Al-Amer, CEO of the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority, launched the deer.
The launch, according to the Saudi Press Agency “SPA,” aims to rehabilitate endangered species, restore their role in their ecosystem, promote self-reproduction, and contribute to environmental balance and sustainability.
The event is part of the reserve’s efforts to enhance community awareness of the gazelle and to contribute to the conservation and long-term viability of wildlife.
The animal release effort is the second of its type in the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve, following the release of 100 gazelles from al-Reem gazelles in January 2021.
