Emirates Wildlife Society is a non-profit environmental organization in the United Arab Emirates, established under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan: (Ruler’s Representative in the western region and chairman of the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi).
Since its establishment in 2001, EWS has been working in association with WWF, federally and in the region and is known as EWS-WWF.
EWS-WWF was born out of a need to protect biodiversity in key sites across the emirates including species and ecosystems of concern in the region; raise awareness on the high UAE Ecological Footprint and contribute to policy and institutional framework to address environmental issues.
We work on a series of projects that address the UAE’s Ecological Footprint, promote science-based policy work as well as on the ground conservation. These are supported by communication initiatives and education programme to raise awareness of key environmental issues.
EWS-WWF’s work would not have been possible without the immense support from generous sponsors and corporate members, as well as valuable in-kind support from individuals and organisations who are as committed to the environmental cause as we are.
