Khan, who was well known for his natural history documentaries, died due to pneumonia complications at a local hospital.
Award-winning natural history filmmaker and long-time Dubai resident Jonathan Ali Khan died this week at the age of 59.
Khan died due to pneumonia complications at a local hospital after falling ill with a lung infection on December 27.
Jonathan Ali Khan had been working on marine conservation in the United Arab Emirates for the past 25 years. He was also working on a new project, reports suggest.
His works include the series Arabia’s Cycle of Life which reached 25m viewers in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region and a recent documentary on Arabian sharks that was screened on the Discovery channel.
It comes just months after Khan’s wife, Jody Ann Rodriguez, died on July 14 following an asthma attack.
