A new wildlife conservation centre has been established under the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to help boost protection of the environment. This was announced by Majid Al Mansouri, Secretary General of Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD), on the sidelines of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (Cites) Falcon Enforcement Task Force meeting, which began here yesterday.



The Endangered Wildlife Breeding and Conservation Centre, headed by Abdul Jalil Al Balouki as its General Manager, has already started functioning with an administrative office in Abu Dhabi and several breeding and conservation premises in various parts of the emirate. The centre is managed and run by the Department of the President's Affairs. It will be responsible for the breeding and conservation of various endangered wildlife species in the country and to carry out studies.



Earlier, he opened the Cites meeting, attended by officials from the convention signatory countries, to discuss the illicit trade in falcons and to identify the main problems in controlling the trade in falcons for falconry. The meeting will continue for three days and conclude tomorrow. (The Gulf News)
