The new eco centre will open on May 23

Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah to open new Eco Centre

MUSCAT, May 19, 2016

Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, a leading hotel in Muscat, Oman, will launch its new Eco Centre on May 23 to coincide with World Turtle Day 2016.

The newly created educational centre, located above Mokha Café, is a dedicated area to explore and learn about the natural eco system in Oman as well as the extensive work that the resort undertakes in our Turtle Care project. The centre will not only have a collection of information to read and view, but will also be the location of our daily “Turtle Talk” and host of fun and engaging activities for children.

There are seven species of sea turtles in the world today, and six are in danger of extinction. All over the world, historical nesting beaches are being encroached upon, leading to fewer nests and fewer eggs laid. Fortunately, many countries, like Oman, are doing their best to protect sea turtles and ensure that they continue to live for future generations. Shangri-La has an extensive programme to protect the whole eco system in Muscat and the efforts to do this will all be highlighted in this dedicated centre.

The opening of the Eco Centre will take place on May 23 at 12.30 pm where both resort residents and invited guests will be joined by children from class KG3 of the Our Planet School in Madinat Qaboos. - TradeArabia News Service
