The commemorative stamps are meant to highlight the biodiversity of the UAE and raise awareness among the public on the need to preserve flora and fauna endangered by the degradation of their habitats, over-grazing and shrinkage of vegetation.

One set of stamps features most widespread wild plants, while other two sets portray desert reptiles and gazelles, respectively.
