International Arabian Leopard Day
International Arabian Leopard Day, held annually on 10th February, is an important opportunity to draw the world’s attention to the plight of the Arabian Leopard.
Listed as Critically Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), it is not too late to save this majestic species of Big Cat.
International Arabian Leopard Day was initiated by the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) in 2022.
In June 2023, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously designated 10th February as the International Day of the Arabian Leopard – a historic moment signalling the global importance of RCU’s mission and a collective commitment to preserving our natural heritage.
As part of its this year’s ‘Leap of Hope’ campaign – created especially for International Arabian Leopard Day 2024, RCU continues to expand its long-term mission to safeguard the Arabian Leopard and is calling on people, organisations, and experts around the world to play their part.
This year’s edition of International Arabian Leopard Day includes the launch of the ‘Quest for Hope’ gaming experience on the Roblox and Decentraland virtual platforms, digital activations in Beijing, London, New York, and Paris, and several initiatives taking place across AlUla.
