UAE: More than 45 volunteers from Emirates Global Aluminium took part in the annual clean-up of the beach next to the company’s site in Al Taweelah ahead of the nesting season of the critically endangered Hawksbill turtle.

The volunteers removed about 1,200 kilogrammes of waste washed up from the sea.

Since 2011, over 100 Hawksbill turtles have laid their eggs at EGA’s Al Taweelah beach, and almost 7,000 baby turtles have hatched.

During the nesting season, EGA’s team tracks turtle nesting patterns, monitors the beach for potential predators, rescues any sick animals, and installs protection measures to safeguard nests and ensure hatchlings have a safe passage to the sea.
