The Crown Prince of Dubai has earned praise for refusing to use his Mercedes after spotting a bird’s nest on it. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is a nature lover, according to Esquire, and his reputation as an environmentalist was further boosted by his decision to cordon off his Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV. 

According to Khaleej Times, Sheikh Hamdan had recently posted an Instagram story which showed his Mercedes cordoned off with red and white tape inside his Dubai residence.
