Paws Trails, a company based in Dubai, is organizing The Mara Trails Photography Exhibition at Art Centre, Mall of the Emirates, which is a celebration of the natural wonders found in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, located in Kenya. The exhibition runs from 20th to 21st May from 10 AM to 10 PM.
Their mission is to use photography and videography to spread awareness of the need to protect wildlife. The show features the work of 30 renowned photographers from the United Arab Emirates who traveled to the Maasai Mara National Reserve to take these stunning pictures. The exhibition showcases the various species that call the Maasai Mara home, including lions, elephants, buffaloes, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeests. Visitors can learn about the unique behaviors and characteristics of these animals and gain an appreciation for their importance in the ecosystem.
Hermis Haridas founder of Paws Trails says, “The exhibition highlights the conservation efforts being made to protect these animals and their habitat. Visitors can learn about the challenges facing wildlife in the Maasai Mara and the steps being taken to ensure their survival, such as anti-poaching measures, community education programs, and sustainable tourism initiatives. Two Maasai community representatives will be present in the exhibition hall to discuss their experiences and raise awareness of this.”
Nisha Purushothaman co-founder of Paws Trails explains, “In addition to the wildlife, the exhibition also showcases the rich cultural heritage of the Maasai people, who have lived in the area for centuries. Visitors can learn about their traditions, beliefs, and way of life, as well as the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world. Overall, the Mara Trails Exhibition offers a unique and immersive experience that highlights the beauty and fragility of the natural world, and the importance of conservation efforts to protect it for future generations.”
