Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Saadiyat Island means Happiness Island. It's a beautiful place where turtles lay their eggs, while birds and people roam all along several kilometres of clean sandy beach. For Saadiyat to stay a happy island, though, they all have to be protected from the threatening trend of overdevelopment. The lesson we must learn, and learn quickly or else we'll be paying a terrible price, is that no true paradise can ever be artificial, and that no wonder of technology can ever replace those endangered turtles, the clean water and sand.
