Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City HOSTS QATAR TV FOR MANGROVES DOCUMENTARY
February 8, 2016 – Doha, Qatar: Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City, Doha’s premier yachting destination, showcased the success of its floating mangroves project, when hosting Qatar TV as part of special documentary shooting. The documentary is expected to air in late February and will be shared across social media.
Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City launched the project in 2012 together with UNESCO and Lusail City to monitor the use of mangroves for capturing carbon emissions, or sequestration, helping to reduce atmospheric carbon levels. Since its launch, the project continues to capture international attention from the science and environmental communities as mangroves also provide a safe, sheltered home for hundreds of birds and marine species, which aids biodiversity and helps to increase fish stocks.
“The protection of the environment has definitely become a factor taken into consideration in every business and not just in the marine industry. As human activity increases across the globe, it is the duty of every noble citizen and organization to employ initiatives that reduce the impact of carbon emissions” Wayne Shepherd, General Manager of Mourjan Marinas commented.
“Conservation of the local environment and being as eco-friendly as we can is extremely important to Mourjan Marinas. We ensure that all of our marinas are built and maintained with the greatest sensitivity to the local environment. For a long time it has been our vision to have this break-through initiative incorporated into the design and construction of our marinas, and we are delighted to have partnered with UNESCO and Lusail Real Estate Development Company to make it a reality.” Shepherd added.
In 2014, Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City was awarded a regional-first marine industry international achievement award with the Clean Marina accreditation.
Mourjan Marinas was also named ‘Leading marina developer in the GCC’ in The World of Yachts Recognition Awards for Excellence 2015.
