Abstract: In marked contrast to the Arabian Gulf, the Red Sea is still largely unaffected by industrial development. Awareness of the relatively natural condition of the Red Sea and its outstanding value as a regional resource lead to the establishment of the Regional Convention for the Conservation of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden by the countries sharing the shores of this region. Saudi Arabia has played a major role in the development of both regional seas programs and is also committed to a national program for the conservation of its own resources. This paper addresses action being taken for the Red Sea within the Kingdom.
