Saudi Arabia, one of the oil-rich Gulf Arabian monarchies, mulls building a landmark mangrove eco-park, first of its kind in the region.
This environment friendly project, spearheaded by Saudi Aramco Company, the world wealthiest firm, will serve as a breeding ground for shrimp, crab and fish species. This park, set to open in 2014, will be built over a 62km area in the Saudi industrial city of Ras Tanura city in the Eastern Province.
