Mourjan Mari­nas - Lu­sail City show­cased the suc­cess of its float­ing mangroves project, when host­ing Qatar TV as part of a spe­cial doc­u­men­tary shoot­ing.

Mourjan Mari­nas - Lu­sail City launched this project in 2012 to­gether with UNESCO and Lu­sail City to mon­i­tor the use of mangroves for cap­tur­ing car­bon emis­sions, and 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.
