Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in Qatar (MOECC) tweeted that during the past weeks, a slowdown in the nesting operations was recorded due to the gusts of wind and low temperatures, but an acceleration in the nesting operations at the Fuwairit site the past week (38 nests within a week), and it is expected to increase in the coming weeks.
The project to protect the endangered hawksbill sea turtles started in 2003 and is being undertaken by the Environmental Science Center at Qatar University under the supervision of the MME with funding from Qatar Petroleum. The project covers Qatar’s northeastern beaches (Ras Laffan, Jassassiya, Maroona, Fuwairit and Al-Mfier).
