Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi to participate in ADIHEX 2015

TThe Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, EAD, plans to showcase the best of Abu Dhabi's land, water and air biodiversity, as well as a number of the organisation's environmental initiatives, during its participation at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition, ADIHEX 2015, which will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from September 9th to 12th.

During the exhibition, the EAD stand will host a number of interactive activities that will aim to raise awareness of the environmental challenges being faced today, and the community's role in conserving Abu Dhabi's biodiversity. Agency experts will also be available to answer queries from visitors about the Emirate's fisheries, terrestrial biodiversity, air quality, and hunting.

EAD aims to encourage the community to play a more active role in adopting sustainable fishing practices through educating them on the different species of fish, and what sizes are best to fish in order to minimise the depletion of Abu Dhabi's fish stock. During the event, the agency will also highlight its efforts to measure and monitor air pollutants and the partners they work closely with to safeguard public health.

EAD will showcase the Scimitar Horned Oryx reintroduction programme as part of its long-term commitment to sustaining biodiversity for future generations, inspired by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan's legacy and efforts to protect endangered species and sustain them in their natural habitat.

The agency also hopes to educate the public on its role in regulating hunting to ensure a balance between the practice, one that is deeply engrained in Emirati heritage, and the long-term interest of maintaining healthy and viable populations of wild animals. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395285199384.html
