“The ghaf tree has supported the people of Arabia for centuries. We believe it is important to educate the public on the importance of preserving this important part of our heritage. Appreciating the value of ghaf to our culture and environment, our late president, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan actively protected and planted the species. Today, with threats to the ghaf mounting, it is vital to safeguard this plant that is integral to life in the desert. In a return, I’m interested in promoting a campaign, which will spread awareness and tell the importance about ghaf among UAE residents.”
