As home to some of the rarest species of animals in the Middle East, such as the magnificent Arabian Oryx, Ostriches Goitered Gazelles, and Persian Onagers, the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve is the perfect location to learn about endangered species. The reserve is recognized as a model of environmental education that is suitable for all levels of learners, and is a very popular spot for children and school outings.
The visitor center of the reserve is equipped with an Educational Hall, an information center that provides students with knowledge on captive breeding, focusing on the Arabian Oryx, and why RSCN initiated the program at the reserve. Students can take a self-guided tour around the Educational Hall to learn about semi-arid areas, how different colors are affected by temperature, and how animals in the desert adapt by having light colors.
The reserve also presents an educational puppet show, a light-hearted and interesting way to relay the importance of protecting animals from illegal hunting.
