Mangaf Beach was affected by an oil spill and has since received some attention. It was being regularly cleared over the past few weeks by KNPC. The final touches, which were by no means a small task, were carried out by a group of volunteers who organised themselves to be there for three hours last Saturday. Do please remember: the weather only started getting better this week, so the heat was also there with them! I was unfortunately unable to join (my sincere apologies) and I hope to be there next time.
On behalf of anyone reading this post, and indeed everyone benefiting from a clean beach, I want to thank Yuri Lipkov for organising the clean-up, and Yan Liu for keeping me informed. The group photo above is by Mr Akbar (KNPC) – Thank you.
The next clean-up is planned for down the road, Mahboula Beach on Saturday 30th October 2010 7am-10am.
