Kayak 4 Conservation [Abu Dhabi]

Kayak through the mangroves of Abu Dhabi and fish out the trash you see.

About the Activity 

Did you know: Mangroves can store up to 4 times more carbon than tropical forests. By restoring mangroves to good health, we also restore our local biodiversity. Afterall, mangroves are home to endangered species of turtles, seabirds, sharks and rays.

Unfortunately, mangroves and their inhabitants are facing numerous challenges, one of which is litter. Let’s do our part to protect them!

On this guided kayak tour, participants will learn about mangrove ecosystems, collect and remove litter, and geo-tag data around litter to inform national policies on single-use plastic.

Who can participate?

This session is open to all Leaders of Change. However, children can only attend  events upon requests and must be by accompanied adults, please reach out to [email protected] for enquiries. Please note this activity will require moderate physical exertion while kayaking.

Which area of Impact does it contribute to?

We must sustain our mangroves, so they can sustain us.

With your help, we can achieve and surpass our objective to:

  • Understand the source of plastic waste and analyse 2,000 kg of litter to support a policy on single-use plastics and help create a thriving circular economy in the UAE.
  • Reduce plastic leakage into nature by 50% by 2030.

Join the mission to Lose the Litter.

The experience was splendid! Fulfilling with a lot of learning. Not only did we understand a lot about mangroves and their role in the environment at large but also about the biodiversity it supports... for eg. different types of snails and details about them which was such a bonus! The birds that we spotted were beautiful! We also had the opportunity to walk through the mangroves to clean them, which make the time spent even more worthwhile (though it is sad that the mangroves needed cleaning up) An experience that not only gets you closer to nature but also opens your eyes in more than ne way. Arabella was so energetic, inspiring and interactive making the entire session very engaging.

it was an amazing day, learned a lot of new and important information about mangroves and the many species that lives with it and depend on it.

Thanks to emirates nature for arranging this activity. It was a nice event overall, enjoyed the nature and company of great participants and team leader. Well briefed before, during and after the event. Its recommended that leader have some communication system to communicate with all participants during the activity. Wishing all the best for future events.
