Be part of UAE’s 50th Ecotourism Destination

Volunteer to set up the UAE’s newest Nature & Heritage Trail in Fujairah

About the activity 

Celebrate the UAE’s 50-year legacy this National Day and be part of the nation’s journey to become a leading ecotourism destination in the world.

How? By volunteering to set up the UAE’s 50th ecotourism destination!

Join our conservation experts in designing and construct a Nature and Heritage Trail in Al Bithnah village. You will survey the area, learn about the local community, explore historical points of interest and discover the flora and fauna of the region.

When ready, the Nature Trail will welcome tourists from the local region and around the world, and showcase the UAE’s natural wonders.

This activity is part of our wider project to revive the traditional falaj irrigation system in Al Bithnah. By restoring the flow of freshwater in these canals, we support local farmers as well as the wider ecosystem, allowing plants and animals to flourish in this arid climate.

Who can participate?

This activity is recommended for adults. Older children can join, if accompanied by an adult.

How long will it take?

Which area of Impact does it contribute to?

Our goal is bigger than helping nature survive. We are restoring urban and wild spaces to make sure that animals and plants thrive.

This activity supports our objectives to:

  • Restore 20,000 m2 of natural habitats (that’s nearly the size of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque complex in Abu Dhabi!)

  • Create one Nature Trail in the UAE by 2022 to give local biodiversity a safe home and encourage more people to spend time in nature.

Join the mission to Protect our Pollinators.

It was informative and enjoyable at the same time. I want to thank Arabella and Mona for making this activity amazing and memorable!. Meeting other volunteers and exchanging ideas and small talks with them was another something I enjoyed a lot.
