KUWAIT CITY, Nov 5, (KUNA): Chairperson of the Kuwaiti Voluntary Work Center Sheikha Amthal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah warned on Monday that legal action would be taken against anybody attempting to break into Sabah Al- Ahmad natural reserve. “Frequent cutting of fences surrounding the reserve were noticed lately with people storming into the area, causing severe damage to the wildlife and the environment,” Sheikha Amthal noted.
She assured the center is cooperating with the Environment Public Authority (EPA) and the Ministry of Interior to follow those violators and punish them. Sheikha Amthal called on people to report any violations noticed and send it with photos attached, to the Voluntary Work Center official website, www.kuwaitvolunteers. com.
The reserve, located 19 kms west of Kuwait Bay, is considered as a strategic reservoir for plants and animals. The reserve aims at restoring the biological diversity of Kuwait and save the habitat of endangered animals and plants species.
