48 Houbara released in the wild to mark 48th UAE National Day

A total of 48 Houbara were released in the wild in Al Ain on Sunday to mark the 48th UAE National Day.

The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC) partnered with the Ministry of Education, Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Falconry and Desert Physiognomy School, Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination, Al Ain Zoo and participating schools to release the birds at the Telal Resort in Al Ain, says a report from the Emirates News Agency (WAM).

The annual release is the latest step in the IFHC’s mission to rebalance wild populations across the Houbara migration range, which spans from Northeast Asia through Central Asia, the Middle East, and North America.

It also continues to raise awareness of the Houbara, its habitat, and importance to the ecosystem through conservation education.

These birds were bred at the IFHC breeding facility in Abu Dhabi.

In order to identify the released Houbra in the wild, they are fitted with numbered rings on their legs. The rings fitted to the Houbra carry the four colors of the UAE flag: green, white, black, and red.

“IFHC is dedicated to realizing the vision of our founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who initiated the Houbara programme in the late 1970s to rebalance wild populations of the Houbara. Our annual bird release allows us to pay tribute to Sheikh Zayed, mark a special day in the country’s history, and continue our conservation education efforts,” said Mohammed Saleh Hassan Al Baidani, Director General at IFHC.
