Abstract:

Rising to heights of 13,000 feet, the Sarawat Mountains of Western Arabia extend for 1,000 miles along the entire length of the Red Sea, and are home to numerous species of wildlife. High juniper forests, fed by moisture rising from the Red Sea, support large troops of Hamadryas baboons, and exotic African birds such as the hornbill, Abyssinian roller, and thirteen other bird species found nowhere else in the world. The abandoned mountain village of al-Fawqa has become home to fruit bats, sunbirds, and weaver birds. In the vast volcanic moonscape that exists behind the mountain wall, spring growth provides a nursery for millions of migrating birds.
