The Arabian Leopard Trust (ALT) was formed in 1992 to protect the Arabian Leopard from attacking the villagers livestock and being killed as the villagers protected themselves.

The Arabian Leopard Trust opened a breeding center in the foothills of The Hajjar Mountain Range in Ras Al Khaimah. Here the Arabian leopard is protected in order to be relocated and reintroduced in areas within which they can live free from any danger. H. H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, the ruler of the Emirate of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, donated a two square kilometre stretch of land in the foothills of the Hajjar Mountains for the breeding center.

The Arabian Leopard is now protected by UAE law. These creatures live in the wild in the mountains of The United Arab Emirates, Oman ( which also has reserves for them), Yemen and Jordon.

The Al Ain Zoo was started way back in 1967 by the late President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan with the purporse to protect endangered species such as the Arabian Leopard and other endangered animals.

Another wildlife conservation park, Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort was a very important step by the UAE to protect these animals and has been successful in breeding them to increase their population.
