World Wildlife Day Celebrations 2020 

3rd March ​2020​

OAPGRC celebrated the United Nations World Wildlife Day on 3rd March along with a variety of institutions, organisations and government agencies including the Ministry of Environment & Climate Affairs and Sultan Qaboos University.

To mark the globally important day, which had as its theme this year "Sustaining All Life on Earth", the center helped organize a special exhibition at Muscat Grand Mall. This lively event proved to be a valuable opportunity to share the wonders and importance of Oman's amazing animal biodiversity and educate the general public on OAPGRC's wildlife protection, preservation conservation activities. Helping our team in this regard were a variety of displays and informative activities including insect boxes displaying the amazing variety of these tiny creatures that populate our land, a film about Oman's native wheat varieties, and a slideshow gallery of our native animals. Tajmee, OAPGRC's new biodiversity app was also demonstrated to visitors, who were encouraged to download it and play their own part in conserving of the sultanate's natural wealth.​
