WATCH: Shaikh Mohammed releases turtle at Dubai beach

His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Dubai Ruler, is winning the internet (local) again with another candid video that shows his love for nature and animals.

When the Ruler is not looking after his horses or participating in Endurance races, he is saving turtles!

In a recent video, posted by his wife, HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, the Ruler can be seen releasing a giant turtle, which looks like the Hawksbill turtle, native to the Middle East.

The instavideo has, so far, already garnered 34,500 views and 205 comments acknowledging Shaikh Mohammed's gesture.


The UAE is one of the few countries spearheading efforts to protect the environment, including at home, by protecting the natural flora and fauna of the country.
