DIWANIYA: K'S PATH’S MARINE CONSERVATION PROGRAM
(Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 7:00 pm)
Kuwait Society for the Protection of Animals & Their Habitat's Marine Conservation Program aims to address Kuwait's bio-diversity issues such as migratory birds, habitat protection, waste impact, environmentally friendly practices & other aspects of marine conservation through education & advocacy, community engagement, conservation activities & co-operation with authorities.
Kuwait's critical areas that are in need of conservation stretch along the bay of Kuwait which is an ecologically rich zone, as well as the islands of Failaka, Umm Almaradin, Kubbar & Garoh. These areas are rich in marine life, coral reef & serve as natural nesting & flocking grounds for migratory birds & turtles. They also see high concentration of waste which pollutes these natural habitats & threatens the lives of many marine birds and fish.
Nadia Al-Sharhan has been the Director of Education at K'S PATH since September 2014. She also oversees the Marine Conservation Program & leads the monthly beach cleanups which run from September to April (weather permitting).
