A Nakheel spokesman said: "Our partnership with the EMEG
to protect and promote sea life in the UAE is a major part of Nakheel's commitment to environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
PROGRESS: Coventry's Michael Riley came second in the Junior EMEG
Regional Road Race Championships near Leicester.
I would like to thank Major Ali and the members of EMEG
for their contributions to today's Al Multaqa session, as well as for their continuous efforts to improve the UAE's environment.
Major Ali Saqr Al Suwaidi, EMEG
Chairman, told Gulf News that the turbine will augment a new no-carbon policy being implemented at the environmentally sensitive Ghantoot reserve, a stretch of pristine beach and tidal pools that hosts nesting sea turtles and their young.
As wells Volkswagen, Siemens, EMEG
and Rotana, other organisations contributing to the event success included Expat Aktuell, PNS and Al Ain Water.
This year, however, Major Ali Saqr Al Suwaidi, president and founder of EMEG
, said 37 hawksbill nests were created in the sanctuary this year, the highest since records were first kept.
Therefore, Dubai Municipality along with EMEG
has taken firm steps to ensure the protection of Hawksbill turtles in the Emirate of Dubai," she further stated.
Major Al Suweidi, said : "At EMEG
we hope to involve as many students as possible in our programs, especially here in Dubai.
We're working with Nakheel on several environmental programmes for The Palm Jebel Ali and The Waterfront developments," said Hadia Nehme, Media Officer, EMEG
But to prevent the eggs being gobbled up by foxes and other predators, the team at EMEG
translocates the eggs to a safer place with similar sand texture and at a similar angle, without turning it because the little turtle inside will die if the egg is shaken.
On our part, EMEG
has done its best to prepare the area and test it before Eole Water installs the device in Ghantoot reserve.
Heritage is an important part of our growth story and this village will provide people with first-hand experience," said Ali Saqar Al Suweidi, President of EMEG
