Preserving Bahrain's Ecological Jewel: OSRL Volunteers in Shoreline Clean-up of the Bahrain Mangrove Forest
mercredi 1 mars 2023
To acknowledge World Wetlands Day on 2 February 2023, OSRL joined a clean-up operation organised by Bapco and other oil and gas companies in the Bahrain Mangrove Forest, a sensitive ecological resource home to various bird species and popular for kayaking. The team conducted the clean-up carefully, avoiding harm to the habitat, animals, and birds and being cautious of snakes. After the clean-up, they transported the waste to a designated disposal area, evaluated the shoreline's condition using Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT), and discussed future clean-up plans with Bapco to cover a wider area. The experience was an excellent reminder to the team of the environment's sensitivity.
