Laila Mostafa Abdullatif

Director General, Emirates Nature-WWF

 

What I do?

I serve as Director General of Emirates Nature- WWF and it’s a role I am extremely grateful to have. It gives me the opportunity to make a significant contribution to our nation’s wildlife and natural resource conservation efforts, two things I am deeply passionate about.

My milestone moment:

With half the world’s population under the age of 30, young people today will shape the world of tomorrow. I am extremely proud to have launched the ‘Connect with Nature’ movement earlier this year, encouraging youth to visit wadis, beaches and deserts to better understand the importance of protecting the UAE’s nature.

Up next:

To work alongside the UAE’s government and businesses safeguarding the country’s natural heritage.
