Oman becomes the bio-diverse nation in Western Asia

Published on : Friday, July 6, 2018

Sultanate of OmanIn Western Asia, Oman is one of the most biodiverse-rich nations with its lofty mountain ranges, valleys, plains, cliffs, rocky hills and coastal areas. It is known for its magnificent green, red turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales, and prey birds like the Egyptian vulture and the golden eagle.
99 different mammals, along with some endangered species like Arabian tahr, Arabian oryx, Arabian leopard, red fox, deer and rabbits live in the valleys and mountains of Oman. The southern region has rodents and wolves and animals like blue-headed lizard, aquatic snakes, Arabian toads, and bats are found in the caves.
Every May, the southern coast of the Sultanate experiences an exclusive phenomenon: cold, nutrient-rich sea water gushes to the edges of the rocks, offering the ideal breeding conditions for marine life.
In the world, Ras Al Hadd, Ras Al Jinz, and the island of Masirah are one of the largest nesting grounds of Green, Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtles and home to around 30,000 turtles. In addition, the Bar Al-Hikman area boosts 30 square kilometers of coral reefs, turning it into a fertile ground for diverse marine plants and the shore is home to millions of migratory sea birds.
Oman is known for its rich desert landscape ranging from golden sand dunes in the East to rocky desert of Jeddah Al-Harasis in central of Oman and the Rub’ al Khali desert in the far south. Here predators such as lynx, sandy foxes, wild sand cats and one of the largest deer species known as Ghazlan Al Reem can be found.
