There is an urgent need to set up conservation measures in Yanbu region due to the several current major challenges that threatening the important biodiversity in the region. There has been no real protection for the millions of migratory birds that use the region each year. A massive amount of hunting, grazing, and destruction of natural habitats occur in the region.
