Dubai Natural History Group

Welcome to the pages for the Dubai Natural History Group (DNHG).

In this section of the website, you will find articles from some of the Gazelle editions in 1999 and 2000, as well as current issues (2006 and later) in PDF format. You can either review the articles as listed by author or you can view individual issues of the Gazelle. Current issues are not yet included in the author list.

We have also included a link to an online version of Sandy Fowler's Shelling Guide for the UAE.


Membership in the Dubai Natural History Group remains a bargain at Dh. 100 for couples and Dh. 50 for singles. You can join or renew at meetings or by sending us a cheque made out to Lloyds Bank account no. 173746. (Please note we cannot cash cheques made out to the DNHG.)

DNHG membership entitles you to participate in field trips and helps pay for our lecture hall, publication and distribution of our monthly newsletter, the Gazelle, additions to our library, incidental expenses of speakers and occasional special projects.


Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management The DNHG's monthly lectures are held at The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, located opposite "Wild Wadi" near the Burj Al-Arab and the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The Emirates Academy features a 140-seat auditorium, excellent acoustics and a built-in audio-visual system.

The auditorium is adjacent to the main entrance, on the Beach Road side. The Academy facade resembles an Arabic fortress, with four flags flying at the front gate. These are normally illuminated at night. The complex is visible from Beach Road but is set back about 100 yards from the road and is now partly obscured by construction. Direct access is currently over an open lot; for easiest access, it is best to follow the map on the right. There is a paved parking lot within the gates.

For those coming via Sheikh Zayed Road/Abu Dhabi Highway, the best exit is flyover #4 (Al-Barsha/Dubai Police Academy).

Members who are coming to lectures directly from work may find it convenient to take advantage of the cafeteria located on the Emirates Academy premises, on the left of the outdoor courtyard behind the main lobby. Non-members are always welcome at the monthly lectures, too. Just come along. The lecture starts promptly at 8.00pm, so if you'd like to eat or chat first, come well before then.
