With your help, we will collect data and footage which will support the conservation of marine ecosystems and underwater species.
We will survey many different species, find out how healthy they are, where they breed, what challenges they face, and how Marine Protected Areas affect their populations.
The data collected will also inform National Plans of Action for conserving sharks, rays and turtles and support global IUCN red listing efforts.
This activity supports our objectives to:
· Protect 30% of the UAE’s wild areas by 2030
· Collect 5,000 new research grade observations of animals and plants in the UAE
Please note that events may be cancelled or rescheduled due to updated safety guidelines from the government. We will try our best to keep you informed of any changes as early as possible. Thank you for your understanding and support.
