Abu Dhabi: Over 50 colleagues from Yas SeaWorld Research & Rescue and Miral participated in a beach clean-up at Yas North Beach with their families.
Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading creator of immersive destinations and experiences, and Yas SeaWorld Research & Rescue held the clean-up to help protect the emirate’s marine ecosystems and mitigate damage caused by harmful ocean debris. The initiative fell squarely in line with the centre’s commitment to regional marine conservation and ocean preservation.
Ms. Taghrid Alsaeed, Executive Director – Group Communications and Destination Marketing at Miral, stated that, “We are proud to conduct this great beach clean-up initiative alongside Yas SeaWorld Research & Rescue, the region’s first-of-its-kind dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation and return center. Sustainability is at the forefront of our 2023 strategy and this initiative is a testament to our shared dedication to improving the community’s commitment to protect the marine wildlife, habitats, and ecosystems. We are united in our vision to forge a sustainable future for our future generations, and this is just the first step of our conservation journey.”
