Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, Buffer Zone and Brain Storming

Ecological 03The Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary Buffer Zone surrounds the core zone sanctuary, and extends into The Lagoons project, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The proposed landscape treatment required special attention due to the Environmental Impact Assessment’s wise recommendations. I was fortunate to receive UNESCO scientist and other NGO backing for my proposed native species lists and plant procurement proposal (tissue culture, seed collection, vegetative propagation) procurement methods.

The design and brain storming exercise also included cultural references and numerous geo-physical modeling features for habitat enhancement and ecological functioning as well as the design and location of ‘target species fauna’ shelters and interpretation boards.
