As the UAE renews its commitment to strengthening the country's position as one of the world's most popular ecotourism destinations, people take part in a mangrove-planting event organised by Companies for Good on Jubail Island, Abu Dhabi.
To fight climate change, the UAE is doing everything from limiting greenhouse-gas emissions to planting more mangroves, seen here in Abu Dhabi.
Mangroves, small trees that survive in salty water, play an important part in the ecosystem of the nation. Here, nature enthusiasts plant mangroves on Jubail Island in Abu Dhabi.
A visitor walks through Jubail Mangrove Park. The UAE encourages the planting of additional mangroves and the expansion of green areas. As part of this programme, schools and businesses will be asked to plant saplings and learn more about the ecosystem's value.
By 2030, the UAE intends to plant 100 million mangroves, a significant step forward in the country's attempts to increase the area covered by the trees on its territory.
Areeja Jaradat and Amina Talbi take part in a mangrove clean-up organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature and Seahawk Abu Dhabi.
Reenima lives in the UAE and has engaged in WWF clean-ups with the Seahawks. Young mangroves will be injured by rubbish and plastic dumped into the sea, she says. These accumulate in the trees' roots and eventually kill them.
Volunteers show the rubbish gathered from Abu Dhabi's mangroves during a clean-up.
After collecting debris from the mangroves, volunteers use an app to track their progress. The data will be instantly uploaded to a database. These statistics provide a worldwide overview of ocean debris, allowing researchers and policymakers to make more informed decisions about solutions.
Grey mangrove is the only species that grows extensively in UAE. The Emirates has a uniquely challenging environment, with extremely hot summers, very cold winters and very salty seawater that is challenging for mangroves.
Visitors enjoy an evening ride through the mangroves and a sunset view of Abu Dhabi.
