VIDEO: Conservation prioritization gives Aramco environmental efforts solid direction
By using this system, the highest-priority species in the Kingdom is a fresh-water species called Arabian Bream.
Which species should ecologists help first?
To identify which species to prioritize for conservation efforts, our ecologists developed a scientific ranking method for every animal species living in the Kingdom.
This is called conservation prioritization.
Conservation prioritization categorizes vulnerable species from highest concern to lowest.
It takes several factors into consideration, such as the species’ conservation status, how restricted their distribution is, population numbers, and how unique it is globally.
By using this system, the highest-priority species in the Kingdom is a fresh-water species called Arabian Bream. The top conservation prioritization species are little known to the public, which makes research and conservation efforts crucial in order to gain a better understanding of ways to protect them.
Across our areas of operation, we help nurture biodiversity and aim to increase the population of the Kingdom’s wildlife.
