In order to achieve this primary and important goal, the association’s experts joined forces with their counterparts in the Dubai Sustainable Tourism Initiative to develop quick and easy-to-apply tips to help visitors to natural areas to deal rationally with its elements, including the following tips:

Not to tamper with the elements of the natural environment and wildlife.

– When entering the areas inhabited by wild animals, do not try to feed them or provoke them, and most importantly not to take them away from their environment.

– Keep calm and not to make noise that terrifies wild creatures, such as speaking loudly or playing loud music.

Avoid driving the car outside the designated tracks, as this endangers the vegetation cover and may take years to restore the plants to their lives again.

– Be careful while roaming, so as not to destroy the burrows or hideouts of small wild animals such as reptiles, small mammals or insects.

Always choose environmentally friendly materials when you visit these reserves, reduce the consumption of single-use plastics in these areas, and use replantable water bottles instead.

Keep your shoes clean. Seeds, insect eggs, and other living things can get stuck in your shoes as you wander around. It is possible that these plants and organisms will be taken to other places unintentionally, so they multiply in that environment and become unwanted.

Keep the environment clean by not throwing trash, and always carry bags of rubbish with you or a container where you can place trash of any kind.

– If you cannot find a container for rubbish in the area where you are, place your trash in a “bag” or a bag designated for that or in your backpack until you find the container.

Always keep the garbage containers closed after disposing of your trash, so that the animals do not jump into them.

Educate yourself by reading about the dangers to wildlife, and work to reduce your carbon footprint to conserve vegetation and wildlife on land and at sea.
