I had one of the best experiences in my life. I saw new places and tried new things, I enjoyed hiking in nature, and I think we were lucky to go in this weather after the rain because there was water that made the wadi more beautiful and the experience more special. Special thanks to Nasser and Ahmed for sharing their knowledge and being helpful.

I had a fantastic experience attending the HIDDEN OASIS: RESEARCH THE FLORA AND FAUNA event in Fujairah on 28 January 2024. It was a well-organised and informative event that exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed the hike and hands-on activity very much. The hands-on activities were a great way to put the knowledge gained into practice. I particularly enjoyed collecting information about plants in the Wadi Huriya and natural habitats The event was well-organised from start to finish. The overall atmosphere of the event was friendly and welcoming. I met many interesting people who share my passion for nature and conservation. Suggestions for improvement: While the event was excellent overall, there are a few areas where it could be improved. For example, [the timing of the event early and the duration should be a little longer. I would love to go back whenever there is a next event.

Very privileged to visit the hidden Oasis which is an UNESCO protected area. It is a home for a diverse type of species. A wonderful experience to understand the flora and fauna in that region. Also EMIRATES NATURE team with their experts we came to know many facts and the information about the site and as well as other things. This time we analyzed the growth of toad species by measuring their body and limbs. Interesting event. Shall join again.

Being part of "citizen science" community is quite rewarding itself - incredibly beautiful place and amazing guides, that share the knowledge and experience of this area. It's only 3 hours, but this opportunity definitely requires half a day.


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.
