Bu Tinah enthrals divers from across region

posted on 14/03/2011: 2202 views



Marine divers from across the region rallied their support for Bu Tinah Island at the Dubai International Boat Show. Hundreds divers, including Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, President of the UAE's Federal National Council (FNC) and member of the Emirates Diving Association (EDA), visited the Bu Tinah voting booth to vote for the Island to become one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Held alongside the Dubai International Boat Show was the Dive Middle East Exhibition (DMEX), the Middle East's only dive exhibition. DMEX not only showcases the very latest in diving supplies, services and techniques, but also hosts something for everyone, from exciting educational activities aimed at children to information on new diving pursuits for leisure divers. The story of Bu Tinah Island was one of the highlights of the programme, with dive experts and the public alike jumping at the chance to vote for the Island. Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair pledged his support for the campaign and voted as well.

If Bu Tinah Island is recognised as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, it will continue playing a large role in the overall marine environmental conservation in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, as well as the region.

The Island was shortlisted among 28 finalists from a list of 447 natural sites around the world, and is the only finalist that represents the gulf region. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
