Dubbed the Marmoon Reserve project, the unfenced desert reserve is home to 19 endangered species, as well as more than 360 native and migratory bird species, 26 reptile species, nine mammal species and 39 species of plants.

It will include observation decks, yoga areas, an outdoor theater and cycling tracks, and will be powered using solar energy. By 2030, it will also be used to host more than 20 annual sporting, cultural and environmental events.
