The United Arab Emirates, famous for its oil reserves, flashy skyscrapers, and man-made Palm Islands, is also home to wide open spaces and desert landscapes brimming with life. In this virtual camping trip, we’ll turn the clock back to 2000, to explore the biodiversity of the region, from scorpions to desert wildflowers blooming after rain. We’ll see how water shapes the natural setting, from the bedrock on up.
