Abstract:
Saudi Arabia has witnessed rapid development in economic, cultural and social aspects since the discovery of oil a few decades ago. This development involves all the governmental sectors including national parks. The need for national parks has become inevitable. Asir National Park was established to provide recreational sites and to preserve the unique natural and cultural features of the park. Research evaluated the impact of human activities of logging, grazing, hunting, land development and elimination and negligence of traditional architecture on Asir National Park features. A questionnaire, interviews and field observations were conducted to investigate the impact of these activities on Asir National Park. Asir National Park suffers a great deal of pressures from human activities. The local population depends on the park as their source of livelihood and as a traditional habit. The study illustrates the most affected zones where action should be taken to preserve park features.
