Liwa launches initiative to protect wild plants


The UAE's Liwa region is taking steps to protect wild plants.

They've launched a range of initiatives aimed at encouraging residents to not only safeguard the plants, but also to cultivate them.

Authorities say they have established a wild plant nursery where hundreds of thousands of wild plants native to Liwa will be grown.

The nursery will  cultivate over 20 species of wild plants like arta, thamam, ghadeh, marsh, tribe, hala, hanga and ghaf.
