Pico UAE held two outdoor activities for staff members: an eco-restoration activity and a survival skills training session.

The participants first learned several essential survival skills, like making a fire without matches or a lighter, tracing water to a water source and making it drinkable, identifying cardinal compass directions, building a shelter, recognising wild foods that one can and cannot eat, and other skills.

Participating staff in the eco-restoration activity cleaned up the garbage in Wadi Shawka area, while learning more about the environment and the wildlife of this fascinating region.

Both these activities were very successful, with staff first learning about, restoring and protecting the natural habitat of Wadi Shawkah and then gaining important life skills which will allow them to become more comfortable in the outdoors.
