The Hawf Area
The Hawf Area is part of the Tentative list of Yemen in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Hawf Area of Yemen is a “fog oasis” on the Arabian Peninsula, and supports the second largest tree-covered area in Yemen. The protected area borders Oman’s Dhofar region and includes a high degree of plant and animal diversity. The endangered Arabian leopard, Yemen’s national animal, is believed to still have a habitat within the Hawf Area.
