Biodiversity is the variety of life forms found on Earth. Because Abu Dhabi is an arid desert region, you might think that it is low in biodiversity. Yet it is teeming with terrestrial, marine, animal and plant life.
But this biodiversity is fragile and easily threatened. Human activities such as building development and external factors such as climate change put even more strains on it.
EAD is mandated to raise understanding of the nation’s biodiversity, to strengthen the policies and legal frameworks that protect it, to conserve species and to nurture ecosystems on air, land and sea.
