Subject: Socotra Cormorant Colony on Siniya Island, Umm al-Quwain

Dear all,

Please see the below news articles concerning planned development of Siniya Island, UAE. As one of the last strong-holds of the Socotra Cormorant (currently listed as Vulnerable) in the UAE, this is devastating news. Current research has indicated that this colony is of global importance, with large numbers returning to breed every year.

I am not sure what or it anything can be done at this point, but I felt it my duty to at least spread the news to anyone who may have a vested interest in maintaining the ecological and environmental integrity of the UAE. I have been made aware that persons within the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (formerly the Ministry of Environment and Water) may raise concerns against this development, however, this is yet to be confirmed.

If anyone has any ideas or information regarding the matter and can share them, it would be duly appreciated. Here is hoping that is it not too late and that something can still be done to protect the colony-

Thank you all for your time-

Kind regards,
Sonya Benjamin
