Abu Dhabi, Aug 13 (IANS/WAM) The greater flamingo has successfully bred once again at the Al Wathba Wetland Reserve in Abu Dhabi, the emirate's environment agency (EAD) revealed Monday.

Flamingos first bred in this area in 1998 and then a decade later.

Al Wathba Wetland Reserve, about 45 minutes' drive from Abu Dhabi city, was declared protected by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in 1998 after it was created by an accidental discharge of over-capacity treated sewage water from Al Mafraq Wastewater Treatment Plant.
