Two Oman fieldworkers share their current research in the Sultanate of Oman.

Oman has enlightened policies towards sustainability, conservation and field research and this evening will give you an opportunity to meet two new young leaders working hard in the field. A unique opportunity to meet them personally and discuss future opportunities to undertake fieldwork in the Sultanate of Oman.

This lecture is open to all interested in conservation and research in the Sultanate of Oman and there are no age restrictions. Please bring young explorers and naturalists, as they will be inspired by Hadi and Abdul.
