Biosphere Expeditions Wildcat Conservation In United Arab Emirates – Spaces Still Available

Spaces are filling fast, but the award winning international conservation organisation still has a few spaces remaining on their upcoming volunteering project in the United Arab Emirates.

 
PRLog - Nov. 20, 2012 - NORWICH, U.K. -- An award-winning, international conservation organisation still has a few spaces remaining on their upcoming volunteering project in the United Arab Emirates.

Biosphere Expeditions, a UK-based wildlife conservation organisation, announced their project dates for 2013 earlier this year and already spaces have been booked up fast.

The first wildlife volunteering project of 2013 will be in January in the United Arab Emirates, working alongside scientists from the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to study local species such as the Oryx and Gordon’s Wildcat.

Participants will be taking part in a variety of tasks from simply studying the movements of the herds to setting camera traps for wildcats and fitting Oryx with GPS tracking collars. Comfortable accommodation and meals are provided for all volunteers and there will be ample time to take in the stunning views of the desert and local wildlife.

Biosphere Expeditions’ Strategy Director Kathy Gill said, “The desert expedition provides a fantastic opportunity for volunteers to give something back while seeing a part of the world that many do not experience. Participants always return with amazing stories to share.”

Without conservation efforts such as the projects organised by Biosphere Expeditions, conservation scientists and researchers worldwide would be required to work with less support. Both the Gordon’s Wildcat and Oryx are on the IUCN’s red list of endangered species.

Only last month it was announced that Biosphere Expeditions would become part of the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) alongside more than 1200 other member organisations worldwide.
