Jumeirah Group unveils new brand identity

“As we celebrate 20 years of DTRP, and in view of the threats our oceans face, it is more important than ever to raise awareness of the critical conservation work being done to protect sea turtles,” commented Barbara Lang-Lenton, director of aquarium at Jumeirah Burj Al Arab. “Initiatives like the turtle-inspired stay experience at Jumeirah Al Naseem not only offers guests a distinct and memorable experience, it provides a deeper awareness and vital support to the DTRP’s efforts in rehabilitating and releasing these endangered species back into the wild.”

Dedicated to the conservation of these precious marine creatures, DTRP is run in collaboration with Dubai’s Wildlife Protection Office, with support provided by Dubai’s Royal Family veterinary facilities and laboratory work provided by the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory (CVRL). The first project of its kind in the region, the DTRP has been instrumental in releasing over 2,150 rehabilitated turtles back into their natural habitats since 2004.
