Save Our Mangroves Campaign

Short highlights video of the ‘Save Our Mangroves’ – Campaign which took place on 30th May 2014 in Al Khor, Qatar. Big thanks to ILQ – and the hundreds of participants and sponsors who made this event a huge success.

Qatar is home to the Avicennia Marina, also known as the grey mangrove or white mangrove tree, communities of which form several forests around Qatar’s shores. These mangrove swamps are home to a wealth of life, including a new species of sea slug that was found in 2007 by a member of the Qatar Natural History Group.

The largest area of mangroves – and the oldest – can be found around Al Thakira and Al Khor.
The purpose of this campaign is to spread awareness about the country’s hidden natural heritage and the Qatari mangrove eco-system.
