green abu dhabi (2013)

In an effort to combat the dire effects from the rapid industrialisation of Abu Dhabi on the vibrant mangroves that line its shores, Crescent Enterprises joined New York University students under the local initiative “Green Abu Dhabi” to collect debris and refuse from the coasts of the region. Each mangrove clean-up is undertaken with the cooperation of the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City and the Emirates Wildlife Society-World Wildlife Fund, and is under the patronage of Shaikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister for Culture, Youth and Community.
