It’s the third animal he’s rescued this year
HH Sheikh Hamdan is known for his support of conservation projects and local wildlife. In September this year he was filmed recusing an oryx, while back in June a video of him rescuing a gazelle went viral on social media.
This week Dubai’s Crown Prince released a video of him helping a smaller creature. On Tuesday evening, he was snapped rescuing an Arabian hedgehog. Also called the ‘desert hedgehog’ the hand sized mammal lives across the Arab world, from north Africa to the Gulf states.
