Turtles Returned to the Sea: Highlighting the Role of Multilevel Partnerships in Wildlife Rehabilitation

Dubai, June 12, 2024 – The Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project (DTRP) celebrated its 20th anniversary with the release of 63 rehabilitated turtles back into the ocean. This event marks a significant commitment to marine life and emphasizes the role of corporate responsibility and multilevel partnerships in environmental care.

The celebration included a panel discussion featuring global experts such as H.E. Razan Al Mubarak, President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The discussion, titled “Out of Sight is not Out of Mind: Our Collective Responsibility to Preserve our Ocean,” focused on the need for collaboration across various sectors to address the challenges facing our oceans.

Razan Al Mubarak commented on the event, noting, "While this project is focused on rehabilitation, not conservation, it underlines the importance of commitment to marine life, particularly from those affected by human activities. It shows the necessity for cooperation across governments, businesses, and communities."

The event showcased the effectiveness of collective efforts in environmental care, demonstrating how different groups can work together towards common environmental goals.
