KUWAIT CITY, Nov 4, (Agencies): Japanese Ambassador to Kuwait, Morino Yasunari, highlighted the deep Kuwaiti-Japanese relations and the importance of bilateral cooperation in raising environmental awareness, particularly among the younger generations.

During a recent visit to the cleaning campaign on Shuwaikh Beach, known as the “Sea Turtles Conservation Operation,” organized by a Kuwaiti environmental association in collaboration with the General Environmental Authority, Yasunari expressed his appreciation for the successful environmental awareness campaign, aimed at preserving the coastal and marine environment, protecting its living creatures, and ensuring a clean and healthy environment.

Dr. Abdulla Al-Zaidan, Deputy Director General for Technical Affairs at the General Environmental Authority, mentioned that the authority annually participates in this campaign, which began in 2000, with the goal of reestablishing the balance in the marine environment and cleaning the coastal areas, especially the areas of great ecological importance.

He pointed out that there are four types of sea turtles living off the coast of Kuwait, which are vulnerable to the dangers of land and marine pollution, including the green sea turtle, the loggerhead sea turtle, the leatherback sea turtle, and the hawksbill sea turtle.

Mai Al-Aqqad, Director of Public Relations at the Environmental Protection Society, emphasized that the society’s collaboration in this environmental initiative underscores the importance of raising awareness among individuals and institutions, in line with the principles of participation and citizenship in safeguarding the country’s environment.

She added that the society’s participation in organizing the campaign is part of its community responsibility aimed at promoting voluntary work, particularly in environmental protection and pollution control. The society also participates in various educational programs for students and volunteers, contributing to enhancing environmental awareness among different segments of society.

The Japanese Ambassador’s involvement in this environmental campaign highlights the significance of environmental consciousness and the need to protect coastal and marine environments. This cooperative effort reflects the importance of raising awareness among individuals and institutions, promoting citizen engagement, and preserving the country’s environment.
