Qatar - Wildlife Secrets of the Pearl Peninsula

Qatar - Wildlife Secrets of the Pearl Peninsula

The venue for the 2022 World Soccer Championships is a place where the desert floor glistens brighter than the stars in the crystal-clear night sky; where the same desert blooms in green and rainbow colours during the life-giving rainy season; barn owls hunt in the dawn glow and foxes - their unrealistically big ears acting both as air-conditioners and direction-finders - stalk prey in the morning sun. Majestically horned oryx, the national icons, stand white and statuesque in the shimmering midday heat; while at night horned vipers duel with leaping jerboas and dangerous long-eared hedgehogs. In the Gulf, human pearl divers dive for oysters, while whale sharks, the world's biggest fish, vacuum up tiny tuna eggs in their tens of thousands. Dugongs and turtles feed in the seagrass, and bats and birds: flamingoes, black-winged stilts, hoopoes, chiffchaffs and shrikes - complete the picture. Many of these animals have adapted to survive at 50 degrees Celsius. But with global warming, they could all be at risk.
