Ras al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary
Area: Business Bay, Dubai
This wetland, the leading Dubai wildlife sanctuary, is famed for its flamingos. Its two hides offer high-quality viewing, and other birds you can see include Kentish plovers, ospreys, marsh harriers and small waders.
Ras al Khor is to be the UAE’s first “Ramsar site” – designated a wetland of international importance. There’s lots planned for the future for this Dubai wildlife sanctuary, including a visitors’ centre, plus possible collaborations with other world-class wildlife bodies.
