Nature at Night

Discover what the wildlife gets up to under the cover of darkness.

About the activity 

In this cool NEW adventure, you will set out to discover nature after sunset, explore your surroundings, and help us map our biodiversity by spotting some of UAE’s natural nocturnal inhabitants.
Join our team of experts to survey the scorpions, identify bats and listen for owls. 
We are looking for wildlife-impassioned volunteers to survey the desert and its nocturnal fauna and assess the challenges to nature.

The area of impact it contributes to

The data you help collect will support the expansion of our conservation efforts, and will be used to:

  • Identify species, distribution and important areas for the various life stages of each species
  • Monitor recovery and pressures
  • Investigate how Protected Areas affect populations
  • Data collected around the various species can feed into the National Plans of Action for the conservation of these species and support IUCN red listing efforts
  • Help change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards bats, scorpions and geckos.

This activity supports our objective to:

  • Protect 30% of the UAE’s wild areas by 2030.
  • Make 5,000 new research grade observations on iNaturalist– that’s 30% more data than we currently have for the UAE on the iNaturalist app.

Wonderful night exploring, we saw a snake, geckos, scorpions and more. You would not know what to expect to see and some of what we saw was the first time for me to see in their natural habitat.

Once again, a great experience and learning and a fun evening. We managed to see the worlds smallest snake, scorpions and several other beauties. The insights from Drew, Arabella and Ahmed are much appreciated

This was a fantastic experience and one of the best I have attended. The guide and teacher were very knowledgeable and learnt a lot that evening. Thank you for a great evening

It was a great session and I really gained a lot of information of the nocturnal wildlife in the UAE.

It was really fun and we enjoyed the hike partially with sun light and partially at night. However, there was supposed to be a first aid kit and at least water and better guidance sense every few people were together and some individuals were not reached for communication on where to go and what to do


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.
