A Celebration of the Natural History of the Emirates

The Emirates is more than glittering skyscrapers and rolling sand dunes that we commonly see in the media. Our young nation is made up of a rich mosaic of habitats and ecosystems that support surprisingly diverse communities of organisms. This symposium brings an overview of the unique environmental setting of the UAE, and surveys the major ecosystems and organisms that occur across our land and seascapes. Using a combination of short ‘snap lectures’ and discussion panels, the symposium seeks to engage the public in a renewed appreciation for the Emirates’ natural history as we celebrate its 50th anniversary.
