This page is intended as a starting page for information and resources provided by the Emirates
Wildlife Society and World Wildlife Fund.
In May 2010, Nessrine Al Zahlawi, Conservation Officer for Emirates Wildlife Society, gave a presentation
on the EWS's campaign to make residents of the UAE aware of the threats to the fish populations in the coastal
waters of the UAE.
You can download a copy of her PowerPoint presentation here.
You can download a copy of her film, Choose Wisely, here. (This is a
Flash version of the movie; the original version in MPEG format is too large for transferring, we believe. If you
need an MPEG format copy of the film, please contact a Committee member and we will produce a copy on DVD.)
For more information about the Choose Wisely campaign, visit the website at
www.choosewisely.ae. If you'd like to be a part of the program, you can
volunteer and be one of the EWS-WWF “Fish Finder” volunteers to work on market surveys, help others identify the
sustainable UAE fish as well as give presentations about the campaign and distrubute the consumer guide in your communities.
If you'd like to be a volunteer, please write to Nessrine.
Thank you to Nessrine and the EWS-WWF for making these resources available to ENHG members and, via the website,
to the world.

details -- email address, phone numbers -- are available under the 'Contact' tab.
