The UAE Ministry of Environment and Water announced the launch of an annual four-month long Desert Protection campaign from January to April 2016. The Desert Protection Campaign will feature a series of seminars, workshops, and educational discussions through activities such as horseback and motorcycle rides.

Aisha Mohammed Al Abdooli, Director of the Ministry of Environment and Water’s Education and Awareness Department, said the launch of the 8th Desert Protection Campaign is important especially as deserts hold an important place in the minds of Emiratis, and is an integral part of the country’s natural environment.

Al Abdooli added that the Ministry is committed to all ecological initiatives that increase environmental awareness. Arif Ali Al Abbar, Chairman of the campaign, said: “We aim to make people more aware of UAE culture – educating them on the importance of keeping our environment clean and free from any harmful materials to humans or animals in the desert.”
