Plants Life​​​

Abu Dhabi is home to around 432 species of native plants, many of them under threat.

We are responding to this with a range of strategies:

  • Establishing key prote​cted areas such as Jebel Hafeet and Marzoum
  • Monitoring, analysing and cataloguing the species and their progress, in order to enhance methods of protection and cultivation
  • Undertaking experimental and research projects, such as our work with UAE University to develop and strengthen our understanding and the protection of indigenous and medical plants

Main sources of threat: Habitat loss due to climate change, increasing desertification, overuse of land, building development, off-road driving​​​​​​​
