Away Day After a hard year's work we let our hair down and enjoy our annual team building Away Day. This year we explored some wetlands around the Forest of Dean to sharpen our ID skills, followed by a very pleasurable evening camping at the eco-friendly site, Thistledown. We also had the opportunity to ‘initiate’ our new staff members into the strange ways of the Cotswolds. The following day we had a great tour around The National Arboretum at Westonbirt learning about management and operation of the site.
Ras Al Khor WWT Consulting are working with Dubai Municipality, Dynamic Engineering and MET Studios to develop a visitor centre for the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary in the centre of Dubai. The reserve is an internationally important Ramsar site as it is a key stop off for migratory bird species. Developments at the site include a visitor centre and enhancements of the habitats within the reserve. Read more in thisarticle.
Nine Dragon Mouth We are very excited to be working with MET Studios Hong Kong and Nanjing University Ecological Research Institute of Changshu to develop a masterplan for the culturally and ecologically important Nine Dragon Mouth Wetland (JiuLongKou), Jiangsu, China. The local government would like to develop an 80ha Wetland Park next to the protected wetlands. We will be providing guidance for how the habitats can reflect the wider reserve of reed, open water and wet grasslands and be enhanced for wildlife. Read more here.
