Study team members
The team studies the negative and positive impacts of camel grazing on the areas where grazing is allowed compared to those where grazing is banned. The impact of ban on camels themselves - both the ones allowed to graze in the open and the remaining ones which are kept in closed areas.
In the meantime, the team continues its studies on the other areas to measure the impact on the green and plant cover at the targeted areas.
As part of protecting wildlife in the local deserts, MME Wildlife and Environmental Protection Department has removed some abandoned barns at Al Nakhsh Area, which constituted encroachment on state owned property.
