Yemen: Threat To Species

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Yemen, Environment

Omar Barsawad says that Hadhramout's ecosystem too, is in danger of being overwhelmed [1]. For the last twelve years, Omar have never seen a hyena around; and yet before he could see one every now and then; and now too, he's seeing fewer and fewer foxes and wild rabbits. Each year thousands of turtles come to the shores of Hadhramout to lay their eggs; and though there is government protection, the number of turtles now is much fewer too.
