Sir Bani Yas is a nature reserve and has undergone massive land reclamation, plantation, irrigation and wildlife husbandry. It enjoys a flourishing wildlife with wide forest area. Many types of birds and animals have made the island their home. Surrounded by a known for its blue sea, the island is gently sloping plains which merge with a fairly level coastal shelf.
I remember this day quite well when we were exploring nearby waters surrounding SBY and passed by a small island which was home to thousands of cormorants. Mar 2009.
