Environment

Sir Bani Yas Island is one of Abu Dhabi’s largest natural sanctuaries. Today, to help preserve this special place, and the animals and plants that inhabit it, we undertake a number of different programmes that aim to keep environmental impact to a minimum.

All activities on the island are run by expert guides who understand this fragile ecosystem and do what they can to prevent any degradation. There are also strict policies on off-road driving and speed limits to prevent any damage to the environment and the animals.

The implementation of an extensive landscaping strategy is currently being undertaken across Sir Bani Yas Island, ensuring the most optimal balance between plants, wildlife and the island environment. You will also notice that this environment is undergoing ongoing improvement with the removal of old fencing, planting of trees and recycling.

We plant Mangroves. Mangroves are important to the ecosystem as they help offset pollution by absorbing harmful carbon dioxide, and they provide fish breeding grounds, while naturally preventing erosion.

Cheetah

We have successfully re-wilded both Cheetah and Striped Hyena into our Arabian Wildlife Park.
