Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Dive Team, af­fil­i­ated with the En­vi­ron­men­tal Vol­un­tary Foun­da­tion, lifted five sunken boats weighted 19 tons from Kuwait wa­ters aimed to pro­tect marine life and nav­i­ga­tion. The boats were lifted from Khi­ran sea­side, Ras Al-Salmiya, Al-Sham­lan Bay, and Al-Shaab Al-Bahri club, team leader Waleed Al-Fad­hel said yes­ter­day. He added that re­mov­ing waste and sunken boats are part of the team’s ef­forts to pro­tect marine life from harm­ful and dan­ger­ous rem­nants, which may cause ac­ci­dents of pass­ing fish­ing and cruis­ing boats.

He af­firmed this vol­un­tary team works with Gen­eral Direc­torate of Coast Guard, Mar­itime Res­cue Cen­ter, Gen­eral Direc­torate of Fire­fight­ing, Kuwait Ports’ Cor­po­ra­tion and other gov­ern­ment ad­min­is­tra­tions. Fad­hel called on own­ers of fish­ing boats and yachts to take all pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures while sail­ing to pro­tect the coun­try’s marine en­vi­ron­ment and prop­er­ties. —KUNA
