The Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX) returns to the capital for its 13th edition from 9th up to 12th September 2015
The event is the Arabian Gulf’s most renowned hunting and equestrian exhibition where visitors can enjoy camel auctions, saluki and falcon beauty contests, art and coffee-making competitions, as well as a variety of traditional hunting and equestrian activities.
Al Ain Zoo has announced to participate in ADIHEX and it will promote conservation, captive breeding and the reintroduction of endangered species .
An endangered species is defined as a population of a living species that is in the danger of becoming extinct because of several reasons.
Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting wild plant and animal species and their habitats. The goal of wildlife conservation is to ensure that nature will be around for future generations to enjoy and also to recognize the importance of wildlife and wilderness for humans and other species alike.
Muna Al Dhaheri, chief of conservation and education at the zoo, said, “Al Ain Zoo has launched several conservation programmes and initiatives that focus on wildlife sustainability and the protection of desert species.
“Our participation at Adihex furthers our commitment to educate the public on these initiatives and we also hope to inspire the younger generation to learn more about wildlife,” she said.
