One of various illustrations created for the Wasit Wetland Centre in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. It has a very diverse ecosystem, which comprises coastal sand dunes and salt flats, linking ponds and a large, open lake. The reserve also contains many lagoons. This gives a home to many bird species. Including numerous migrating and rare birds. The centre aims to educate people on this diversity and it offers its facilities to the public and researchers. It contains eight bird hides, each providing detailed information and signboards about the birds that frequent the area, while binoculars and golf carts are available to take visitors through the wetlands and bird hides.
