Prof Bernard Pierson was geology advisor with The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) from 2003 to 2007. During that time, he developed and led geological field trips to the coastal environments of Abu Dhabi. He is convinced that it is more than just sand and rocks and that the natural environments and the geological features found in Abu Dhabi are unique and deserve to be protected. He tells us why in this article, originally written for a mixed audience and published in the October-December issue of ADNOC News. The words ‘protection of nature’ immediately bring to mind saving endangered species, marine ecosystems, and threatened rain forests. Environmental agencies and conservation-oriented NGOs indeed focus mainly on the protection and preservation of fauna and flora. But who would think that geological settings, rocks, or minerals also need to be protected?
