Sharjah Sustainable City Celebrates World Wildlife Day with Nest Box Workshop

Events March 5, 2023

In celebration of World Wildlife Day, Sharjah Sustainable City hosted an interactive Nest Box workshop on 4th March 2023 to educate its residents about bird habitats, nesting habits, and the benefits of having bird boxes in the neighborhood.

Participants, especially young residents, learned how to produce and monitor the boxes using recycled materials, including plastic bottles and cardboard.

The workshop also featured a knowledge transfer gallery hosted by Ahmed Al Ali, an award-winning photographer and bird expert, where participants learned more about birds and local wildlife as well as their invaluable contribution to a healthy ecosystem.

Overall, the event served as an excellent platform to raise awareness of urban biodiversity’s critical role and promote bird-friendly practices and actions to foster a wildlife-friendly culture within the city and beyond.
