45 Houbara bustards released on the 45th UAE National Day Anniversary

 

The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC) celebrated the UAE 45th national day anniversary in their own style. The IFHC released 45 Houbaras that were bred in captivity in the IFHC centers. 45 academically distinguished students of Remah Schools did the release during an event hosted by Remah hills in the Remah region.

Ali Mubarak Al Shamsi, the acting head of communications and public relations at IFHC, expressed his pride and enthusiasm on the occasion of the National Day saying: “It is a historic & significant day we celebrate every year. It represents and reflects the power and cohesion of the UAE society. It means team spirit and solidarity between the leadership and it’s people. It inspires the values of the union that was established by the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan – may Allah rest his soul in peace. We shall continue the same march of dignity and pride under the glorious shadows of our leaders”.

Al Shamsi added that the school students’ participation in releasing the Houbara showcases the IFHC’s strategy of spreading awareness amongst the young generation about the significance of the Houbaras within the UAE heritage. He said his IFHC team noticed the students’ passion and enthusiasm before, during, and after the event from their numerous queries about the bird, its life, and its symbolism.

This year’s event embodied several cultural-informativeactivities for the students when they visited the Zaman Lawal (ancient times) heritage village and got acquainted with many aspects of our founding fathers’ ways of life. Two of the students participated in two workshops on traditional Arabic coffee preparation ceremonies; to closely learn about their forefathers’ heritage.  

The IFHC is keen to engage in most of the UAE festivities and spread the knowledge & awareness of the Houbara birds amongst all spectra of people, especially the youth.
