The Islamic approach to natural science – abroad understanding of man’s responsibility toward nature, combined with accurate observation of the living world – led to practical uses of scientific knowledge. Science-based innovations were in use in the Islamic world hundreds of years before they were taken up elsewhere.
Knowledge of plants improved medicine through the use of natural drugs. The Islamic pharmacopoeia was only later copied in Europe. Gardens became part of Islamic culture thanks to this botanical knowledge, while farming was improved using plant and animal science. Zoology and anatomy speeded the early development of human medicine and animal husbandry.
Today, specialists in Islamic countries continue the tradition of innovation in science and technology.
Brief About “Arabian Wildlife Center”
Specialists in Islamic countries continue to work in science, medicine and technology. One important science field today is wildlife conservation. The breeding center for Endangered Arabian Wildlife (BCEAW) was set up in 1998 to study insects, fish, reptiles, birds and mammals. Its many successes already include saving populations of threatened animals, like Arabian leopards, tahrs, and Oryx. Government of Sharjah. Situated approximately 25 km east of the city of Sharjah the BCEAW, is the only one of the four facilities which make up the Sharjah Desert Park that is closed to the public and, is responsible for the captive breeding and research of the indigenous Arabian fauna.

Technologies & Information’s
Adaptation In Action “The Camel”
The breeding center for Endangered Arabian Wildlife (BCEAW) provided with many technologies, one of the most amazing technologies was explaining the Camel in robotics model, I have came out with many information’s about camels that I haven’t even knew about, In here I will demonstrate the Camel Robot Information as an example of the technologies used in the museum .
Called the ship of the desert by early European visitors 700 years ago, because of its rolling gait and ability to carry big loads.
It’s no exaggeration to say that without the Arabian camel, life for people in the desert would have been impossible. Beast of burden and source of milk and meat, the camel has served man for at least 5,000 years.But People only exploited nature’s gifts. The camel is a perfect example of natural adaptation.
· Drinks up to 100 liters, then goes without water for 3-4 days.
· Has broad, padded feet to support its weight in soft sand.
· Can tolerate 25% weight loss through dehydration – fatal for most animals.
· Stores fat in its hump.
· Has fur for insulation against heat and cold.
· Can close its nostrils in sandstorms.
Rocks & Static Fluctuations Prehistory
The museum contain a real information in real audio and video stream about the history of Rocks and the Earth in general, it even contain short films/movies which it call ” Cinematographic ” more like a movie or a short film but in graphical way, were it explains the earth movements in ancient times, On the other hand rocks are being explained in a very creative idea called ” Information Graphics ” Or ” Infographics” each rock will be explained in a huge poster labeled behind or next to the rock .
Here is some of the infographic design about “evidence from space”.
