Tubli Bay to undergo BHD138 million conservation project

Bahrain’s Tubli Bay is set to undergo a BHD138 million conservation project in the coming few years.

The area, which is important because of its mangrove trees and seagrass, has been protected since 2006.

Back in 2018, the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) launched tours in the area.

Visitors to Sitra Park can book onto a tour between 8am and 4pm, either exploring just Tubli Bay for BHD20 for four people, or embarking on a trip around the mangrove forests and areas offering up a great view of Bahrain’s skyline for BHD5 per person.

Bahrain is currently undergoing a number of projects to help protect the environment.

The Arabian Gulf University is preparing to work on a study of the risks of climate change on Bahrain’s marine environment, with a particular focus on biodiversity changes and the effect this will have on the economy.

Once the report, which is being organised by the Regional Organisation for the Protection of the Marine Environment, is finished, it will be used to suggest changes to lessen or prevent the damage.

As well as this, the Kingdom is also considering banning plastic fishing nets and returning to biodegradable ones previously used.
