Sir Bani Yas has always enjoyed a stellar reputation as well-maintained nature reserve and tourism destination. To ensure that the Island remains a clean and safe haven for the diverse bird, animal and marine wildlife that call it home, the Desert Islands conservation team, along with various partners on Sir Bani Yas, participate in various environmental initiatives and events.
These include ‘Clean Up Arabia 2013’ that was organised by the Emirates Diving Association (EDA) with the support of the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD) and Dibba Municipality. It took place on November 22, 2013 and was held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hazza bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
As part of the annual campaign’s activities, Sir Bani Yas participants cleaned up any harmful marine debris discovered around the Island, as well as explaining the negative impacts of marine debris for Island guests.
Planning the conservation and environmental future of Sir Bani Yas Island is quite challenging, it makes it more special knowing that we are realising a dream.
Being a game capture specialist, one of my best experiences was the physical capturing of the Cheetah which was one of my dreams to be accomplished.
My proudest moment has probably been on the conservation and rehabilitation of the Arabian Oryx. These beautiful creatures are close to home and close to my heart.
I love working on a team that is dedicated to continuing Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s “Greening of the Desert programme”. Its truly exciting being part of an island.
