The Federation’s wildlife preserve planet Salvum

A wildlife preserve, wildlife refuge or game preserve was a sanctuary for plant and animal life. Unlike with a zoo, large quantities of animals were able to roam together privately in vast habitats. On non-Federation worlds, some preserves were used as arenas for hunting the animals.

It took months or could even take years for the Federation Council to review a petition filed to classify a world as a wildlife refuge. (VAN - Declassified novel: The Ruins of Noble Men)
