Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD)
Starting as a small group of pioneering ecologists in 1996 working in the harsh desert environment, we have grown – breaking down barriers and pushing the limits of science and conservation. We are now the largest environmental regulator in the Middle East, continuing the strong legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan by exemplifying his values of conservation. Our proudest achievements include setting up the Sheikh Zayed Protected Areas Network, recording 100 unknown invertebrate species and leading the region in banning gargour fishing nets – while our mandate is focused on regulation and direction of policy with transparency.
