CELEBRATION TRAIL, ALULA
LEOPARDCELEBRATION TRAIL, ALULA
The Arabian Leopard Celebration Trail in AlUla is one of several trails launching all over the world. Known as the Catwalk Trails, this network of wild walks is positioned to raise awareness about Big Cat conservation and underscore that all of our wellbeing is interconnected.
Located in the beautiful Sharaan Nature Reserve in AlUla, the location of the Arabian Leopard Celebration Trail has been carefully selected. This walk is not far from where Arabian Leopards may one day be reintroduced into the wild.
The Arabian Leopard is the smallest of the Leopard subspecies. Listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN, it was once found across the Arabian Peninsula, but today, can only be found in Oman, Yemen, and possibly parts of Saudi Arabia.
Sadly the Arabian Leopard is threatened with extinction. Habitat loss, human interaction, and ecological breakdown have all contributed to its decline.
Through the work of the Royal Commission for AlUla, and their partners, there is hope. One day soon, these magnificent creatures will once again roam these beautiful lands.
