United Development Company (UDC), master developer of The Pearl-Qatar and Gewan Islands, is partnering with non-governmental organisations and private and public institutions to clean up the Porto Arabia seabed at The Pearl-Qatar.
The Pearl-Qatar Seabed Clean Up campaign is organised to mark the World Clean Up Day, the National Clean Up Day, and the World Water Monitoring Day, and will be held this weekend, on 2 November, in collaboration with Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), and other partners. The campaign will feature professional divers and is expected to attract participation from residents and visitors to The Pearl-Qatar.
This event follows UDC’s commitment to promoting environmental awareness, within the framework of the company’s wider strategy and previous initiatives that are based on national and global sustainability principles.
The Pearl-Qatar’s coastline spans 32 km, with a mixture of sandy beaches, rock revetments, and sea walls. Ronautica Middle East – one of UDC’s subsidiaries – transports residents and visitors around the island using electric water taxis.
The diverse environment of The Pearl-Qatar is home to over 98 species of aquatic animals, 23 species of birds, and 14 species of wildlife species.
A total area of 515,000 sqm of The Pearl-Qatar is softscape, with 66 different species of trees, shrubs, flowers and grass. Over 10,000 trees and 70,000 plants have been planted since construction works began on the island.
