Abu Dhabi Set To Become The World’s Best In Environmental Conservation

9th April 2022

The Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD) has rescued over 200 sea turtles since the start of the new year, supported by the National Aquarium of Abu Dhabi (TNA), their Wildlife Rescue Programme partner and the largest aquarium in the Middle East.

Established in 2020, the Wildlife Rescue Programme is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing native wildlife in Abu Dhabi. Last year, of the 250 rescued sea turtles, 150 were released back into the ocean, of which three were satellite tagged. The EAD now monitors them, studying their behaviour and habits, to ensure their longevity for future generations. This latest batch of rescues, is their strongest start to a year, so far and they will be released back into the Arabian Gulf shortly.

The EAD is ramping up its efforts to further protect and conserve native wildlife by adding more manpower and investing in state-of-the-art facilities for rescued local wildlife, with a specialized emphasis on sea turtles.

This announcement coincides with the EAD launching Abu Dhabi Environmental Centennial 2071, a comprehensive environmental vision for the Emirate for the next 50 years, and its commitment to make Abu Dhabi the world’s best in environmental conservation, which in turn is aligned with the UAE’s government’s goal to be the best country in the world by its 100th anniversary in 2071.

The Environmental Centennial 2071 lays out three pathways to lead a greener era, with the first pathway being a "vibrant emirate, thriving in nature". It also includes four pillars describing the ambitions of conserving Abu Dhabi’s environment, its natural resources, and ecosystems within advanced frameworks to ensure a healthy environment for all, and to ensure Abu Dhabi is the most advanced city in terms of environmental health.

The second pathway, "green force resilient to climate change" also includes four pillars to achieve excellence in climate action, so Abu Dhabi can become resilient and proactive in addressing climate change. This is in addition to adopting various renewable energies to transform into a low carbon fleet and consolidating the concept of a circular economy toward the closed loop with no waste. This follows a green economy approach that competes with the best economies in the world while integrating natural capital and converting to green infrastructure.

The four pillars of the third pathway, "enablers for future environmental leadership," focus on the common enablers across all other pillars of the centennial. These are to take the lead on shaping the future, becoming a pioneer in environmental conservation, creating positive change, and developing an extended vision for future generations. This will be achieved through the swift and wise adoption of green policies and regulations, non-traditional environmental education, and awareness programmes and green solutions in future government work.

If your business operates is in the fields of conservation, green energy or the environment, then Abu Dhabi is the place to be; setting standards and pioneering the integration of environmental conservation with government departments and strategies to master a successful a circular economy.
