Xpress News, 5 June 2008, gives a progress report on the three year conservation project at Fujairah’s Wadi Wuraya. See article written at the project’s commencement.
Located in the emirate of Fujairah, this environmental area is a thirty minute drive from the Al Bidya mosque in Khor Fakkan, fifteen minutes of which involves an off-road drive.
The site is valuable for its water resources, flora (300+ plant species) and fauna (75 insects, the Arabian tahr, snakes, lizards and maybe the Arabian leopard?) It is also rich in archaeological assets.
