Western offshore Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, lies a wealth of unique natural, wild and undisturbed by human activity: The island is located in Bu Tinah.Pulau marine reserve areas Marawah was built by UNESCO, the UN agency for cultural and social affairs. The island is entered as a candidate for one of the seven wonders of the world for natural categories baru.Laut that surround the island area of two square kilometers is very clear. I was so crystal clear, was essentially invisible. Fly fish a lot of looks, a dolphin suddenly came up, we can even feed the birds that are migrating Flamingo.
Bu Tinah ecosystem is growing rapidly form a unique living laboratory with major significance for climate change research. A haven of undisturbed, Bu Tinah can teach humans a lot about environmental protection and survival. This unique natural habitat has shallow waters, seagrass beds and mangrove height, located in the middle of a vast landscape of coral reefs. Residence the beautiful marine life and endangered species. Sea birds, including flamingo and osprey, various species of dolphins and hawksbill turtle species live in Bu Tinah. Waters of this island is home to the dugong population in the world, large marine mammals are threatened with extinction worldwide. The island of Bu Tinah Island, rich in biodiversity, lies in Marawah Sea Biosphere Reserve – the largest marine sanctuary in the region. Protection and survival must be ensured.
Fauna in Bu Tinah:
Bu Tinah is not a name, but the name of an island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. On this island lived a variety of rare and beautiful animals are protected, including:
flying fish is a fish families comprising about 50 species grouped in 7 to 9 genera. Flying fish are found in all major oceans, particularly in tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. The main characteristic of the most prominent feature is a great chest fin, allowing these fish glide briefly flying through the air, above the water, to escape from predators. Launch as far as they are usually about 50 feet, but they could use a boost on the edge of the waves can reach up to a distance of at least 400m.
The dolphins are highly intelligent marine mammals, other than the natural systems that complement the body is very complex. So much technology that is inspired by dolphins. One example is the skin of dolphins that could minimize friction with the water, so the dolphins can swim with a little water resistance. It is used by swimmers to design swimsuits that resemble the skin of dolphins.
Eagle is a warm-blooded animals, have wings and body covered with feathers midrib. For birds, eagles breed in a way that has a hard shell eggs in the nest is made. She looked after him until able to fly.
Dugong is a kind of marine animal that is one rather than four species of Sirenia or sea cow which still survive in addition to manatees, mermaids are not included in the fish. He is the only animal who represents the family Dugongidae. He is also the only sirenian can be found in waters at least in 37 countries in the Indo-Pacific region, although most of the manatees live in the waters of northern Australia. Mermaid or dugong is the only marine mammal herbivores or maun (leaf eaters), and all species of sea cows live in fresh water with a specific water temperature.
Flamingo is a bird species that live in groups legged ladder. They are derived from the genus Phoenicopterus and family of Phoenicopteridae. This bird is found in western and eastern hemisphere, but more numerous in the eastern hemisphere. There are four species of flamingos in the U.S. and 2 in the Old World flamingo species.
Green turtle is one species of sea turtles are common and more numerous compared to some other turtles. Kind of like the leatherback turtle in the report has been greatly reduced in number and including one type that is almost lost in the waters, only a few places that still occasionally be a place of spawning for this species of sea turtles. Leatherback sea turtles are protected and included in the CITES (Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species) Appendix 1. Although more numerous in the appeal of another turtle, green turtle population is reduced each year by the arrest and membunuhan either intentionally or unintentionally caught by nets.
Sea turtles, generally bermigasi a considerable distance with a time not too long. We may still remember one scene in the movie Nemo, while Nemo met with the male green sea turtles migrating hordes. Not exactly the same as the migration patterns of sea turtles is generally sufficient, but clearly suggests that sea turtles migrate as a series of life cycle. Once in the report that reached the green turtle migration distance of 3,000 km in 58-73 days. Several other studies have revealed that the sea turtles hatch on the water, found in the surrounding waters and Hawaii.
Sea turtles, especially green sea turtles are plant-eating animals (herbivores), but occasionally may swallow some small animal. These animals are often in the report beruaya around seagrass beds (seagrass) to find food, and sometimes takes macroalga found around desert algae. In the seagrass beds of these animals is more like some kind of small and soft like seagrasses (Thalassia testudinum, Halodule uninervis, Halophila ovalis, and H. ovata). In the field of algae, animal love (Sargassum illiafolium and Chaclomorpha Aérea). Never been reported also that the green turtles takes some Invertebrate which are generally attached to seagrass leaves and algae.
Flora in Bu Tinah:
In addition to the Maldives and Glapagos islands, small islands in the UAE is also rich in marine species are diverse. There are at least 16 species of coral in the waters of Bu Tinah who can live in temperatures and salinity levels that can kill in other parts of the world. Shallow waters full of sea grass is also home to approximately 600 endangered dugong, hawksbill also been very rare.
Bu Tinah Island is a gathering place for animals and plants.That is why we must maintain and conserve.Next all of people in Arab should be introduced to the world.Hopefully the above can be useful and add to the knowledge of the reader.Thank you….
