Desert Wildlife

The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, DDCR, is a 225-square-kilometre (87 sq mi)  natural reserve in the emirate of Dubai. With the rapid development of the city as a major business centre in the Gulf,  Dubai recognised the need to preserve its unique and beautiful desert habitat, and the many threatened flora and fauna species within. This unique reserve was created for the protection of those endangered species and for the conservation of the natural desert habitat and heritage.
