The Abu Dhabi Birdathon, organised by Etihad Airways and the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, is a unique competitive and educational initiative. Launched in the Year of Zayed (2018), it honours and commemorates the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s deep connection to sustainability and his passion for protecting endangered species.
In November 2018, ten Greater flamingos, each one nominated to a leading organisation in Abu Dhabi, were tagged with a satellite transmitter and released from the internationally recognised Al Wathba Wetland Reserve in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Participating organisations’ staff are being engaged as they watch to see which flamingo flies the farthest, spreading Sheikh Zayed’s passion for protecting endangered species even further.
You can track the birds with this app as they fly across the globe.
