11:34 am
it's experienced a rapid development since oil and natural gas were discovered here in the early 19 hundreds mega projects keep changing the gulf nations landscape. but the guitar coastline and it's desert are also the source of a different kind of natural wealth. and if left unprotected ketter's native species and those who used the tiny gulf nation as a stopping point, as part of their long migration could be endangered. as a result of a loss of habitat. i'm stephanie decker, the waters off the car closer. we are surrounded by whale sharp, the biggest fish in the world. and this addition of took the al jazeera will take you on a journey with us to touch ours, diverse wildlife. it will be joined by a marine environmentalist and also a conservationist and will be discussing the impact the potential uncontrolled
11:35 am
development could have on these are diverse wildlife spaces living here. if unprotected. oh, it all started a few months ago. we wanted to know more about the present here of the do go or see cow. we happened the region, the 2nd lot of the schools in the world. this is how we 1st met dr. munson i. yes, i am maria environmentalist and professor from carter university. responsible for taking those beautiful joan images and also his model shape from exxon mobil research. they've been studying the do guns and why they gather here in such large numbers. we have to table cigarettes here, the hello hello and the 100. and so these are the,
11:36 am
the only thing to do something. yes. okay, so i mean, it's important to protect it. yeah, this is very important to know whether the figures will not find any dog on it. but the most important for us, how to protect it from the fishing net, how to protect it from and removing this food, which is mean the secret us. i looked a she gloss area already. they move during a lot of developments going on during the pollution we were incredibly lucky to find the elusive herd on another day. so i'm using these if you can close up to them and you can see the gathering that you need to huge. i'm not sure about number, but like under to plus, but it's a beautiful thing to see them that close. but the reality is that these animals are
11:37 am
endangered on a deserted beach in the north of qatar is hint at why their numbers are decreasing . in 95 percent of the facility of the dog on here to pop it can can by touched by car jack mean, it says attached to the fishing that they need to breathe within 5 minutes to 6 minutes. if they are under stella, they would die. you know, well, yeah, and because of that you will not see any physical evidence. you know, how do you stop this from happening? the stop this is just to protect their feeding area with the grass. and just to confirm that people like the marine mammal, they are an endangered species. wish to protect them, we should do something ah, the survival of our plan. it's natural treasures depends on the protection of
11:38 am
wildlife habitat of entire ecosystems, just an hour north of cutters, capital doha. we continue our journey with the professor to find the landscape. many would be surprised is here in the gulf. hello. this is. and this man groups really is affecting our coastal area for roger. so really it's benefit to go to the country. the 3 have like hundreds of rules and this ruth is looking good. they are pretty think from the, from this route. oh wow. so they breathe through one of the exactly, and they really ever benefit. you can think about it. when the high tide is coming, small fish, they go on and hide between these fruits and from predators. exactly. because the big fish kind of goes from the growth is a beautiful to see if the sink in symphony. you know, birds and 6 crabs, fish,
11:39 am
everything there. mm. oh. we return at high tide to see the difference. oh. so it's completely different at high tide. julia, this is where the big fish coming now to feed is it is a lot of development that is happening here. how concerned are you about the impact that that's going to have on the mangroves on a place like this? since i started my own carrier in the marine science in this area, really still protected and this is really very good sign only i'm thinking about the future. if there is something is happen and we need to this area for reason. rather, this is going to be, you know, distribute from the, from our mad next generation coming. they will say nothing. and this is my only
11:40 am
concern now. and what kind of an impact is pollution have on the mangroves only the human and back to the people who really leave when they are leaving the the area like blasting something the plate. maybe you can see there is one plastic bag. it's over the, there can be really hurting the, the main roof. it's twisted all around the branch. in my hope it's this last week will be just bend in this country. it's possible, you know, so many can through this. so, but because this is killing really a lot of, for even landon m a like camels, i see a lot of people just throwing things out of their car. there seems to be a bit of a lack of awareness is really difficult. we try hard to really, but now this, this is bitter comparing to the previous time. but if we stop the blas dick, we're going to really do good job to protect the environment. also on the
11:41 am
northern tip of qatar, a small taste of just how enormous the world's plastic problem is. jose saucedo had the group that organizes beach clean ups and urges the community to get involved. for everything that you see here is being washed off from the ocean. but whenever i say that, you know, i wanna be sure that we don't create a misconception that is always wash thought be someone else's, trash is not a trash. it is or trash, you know, 80 percent of the plastic that is found in the ocean comes from land sources. so that plastic bottle that you and i just threw away whatever we were at the coordination, the bar got a sports event is going to find its way to the beach and eventually the ocean is going to dump it back on the beach. if that didn't seem to the bottom of the ocean, the scale of it, how bad? cuz this, i mean it's just littered everywhere the plastic everywhere. or used to give you a little bit of a scale and understanding in these beach we've done in the last year with it 14 cleanups. we had a 1600 volunteers that came on all those cleanups. and we collected 20 tons of
11:42 am
trash in 14 cleanups. the biggest clean of one breaker that we've done was in may of last year. during ramadan we had 300 volunteers. in one hour we collected 5 tons of trash in probably toward 300 meters of beach. so show me a little bit about what you find because you can see light ball loads of plastic bushels. deodorant, absolutely. so if you don't mind, what we can do is we can grab a block, a bag very quickly and just emulate what we do under cleanups. and so you guys can see how quickly we feel up a bag with
11:43 am
. so i think right now if you get the point right? yeah. we spent or 5 minutes. maybe we filled up a bag each. each bag is around 12 kilos. ah. so you can do the math and we've literally been in a tiny. yeah. we haven't moved. we haven't moved, i mean we and we rotated a little bit. we haven't even really started to clean it. so when we bring a 100 volunteers, 300 volunteer juke, and see how we can just cover a lot of ground and end up with 450 of these bags in one hour. so that tells you the magnitude of the problem that we face. ah, the corona dynamic means there's been less of us out and about less of us traveling . busy ah, we took a boat of cat, or is northern coast, with dr. musson to gauge the impact. have you observed the change in
11:44 am
nature? due to corona less people on the water, less people out live in it who are not just in the, in everywhere, even the, the vision you can see a clear sky everywhere, the water to become water clear, more fish coming close to the area. and her last tell us one thing, where does the human, where does that is awesome. may think you doing very well without afraid under listen. if you live something along, anything even has done it is we're recover. listening then glutton. but if more, a breath are coming through it. we're going to lou. this area is also rich in bird life. ah, thousands of cormorants have been feeding all around cats throughout the day. and
11:45 am
now as, as the sun is setting coming back to where they spend the night. ready and it's incredible to see they're just flying over our heads. thousands and thousands of them. oh, birds are having to feed passion. i've been watching bird for more than 15 years. and i was a hunter. so when i started photographing, learn, still, i decided to stop hunting because actually they show me something i, i wasn't seeing before. we have offered like more than $350.00 birds. so it's a good thing cut out. it's like a station for these birds while they're migrating from place to other.
11:46 am
oh but to get the shot, patience and blending in a key. and how does it feel when you get that perfect shot that you've been waiting for for so long? like not forget hours, right, days years, something exactly. sometimes when you are focusing on like where birds and you want to get there, we will take like a week, some like fisher, i spend like around 3 weeks just take one shot while his diving in the water to take the fish and coming out the ministry of the environment is the clothes in place to protect some of these birds during their breeding season. the hunting season run september to march, not side of that. it is illegal to hunt. we're told you hunt. you also appreciate
11:47 am
nature and understand the need to protect it. how do you balance that, how, how can you find a balance between those 2 things? well, actually it's hard to balance between these 2 because like we are hunters and we belong to traditional people, we used to hunt also like our parents. it's a traditional thing to us. so when you come and you tell them, please don't tell her to be like a challenge and you need to fight for protecting these but maybe talk change in about 5 or 10 years later. i hope so. then just as we finished our interview, i think we're good with oh and it might really wind gust freeze us from the unbearable heated greenhouse effect of the tent.
11:48 am
ah, it's slightly cooler at dawn and our journey continues. we had south this time, we want to take a look at man's efforts to try to help nature because of what we have destroyed. katara environmental expert, mohammedan jaida has been involved in the placing of artificial reefs along this coast. ideally we'd have not, tory, why, why do we no longer have not the furnace? in fact, we notice in $96.98, it's the heat wave came and killed may be 90 percent of the cost, the reef, or coral, i mean. and also in the sea, but that is also the increase navigational movement in the gulf limits city put,
11:49 am
pressure on the oil in this is not to use the, you know, says mic search and they use the wave. but this also effect mammals, you know, we put pressure on them to compensate. so the compensation consist of, you know, replacing cor, reeves, phoebe, see grass, you know, or programs to study marine life. so this is all compensation from the oil industry . so the reality here is that there is a lot of development oil and gas or, but they said, how do you balance that out? that isn't going to change. how do you balance that with preserving and conserving nature? the number one difficulty is the mentality. the mentality of people we deal with, you know, when we tell them what you're doing is has an effect on the environment. they don't believe it or no, no god created this and god the protective. yes. but also god gave us the knowledge to do that. you know, so once we go over this obstacle, sometimes we deal with, with good people in charge. they understand that actually they push into the
11:50 am
environment, the balances by compensation that otherwise there is no other way to, to balance it. you know, katara has some beautiful coastline, beautiful beaches and despite it being the heat of summer, we've come here to the north eastern coast because we want to find out more about what's happening under the water. and to do that, we need to speak to a couple, a marine biologist and a captain who been studying these waters for almost 15 years. they're currently in france. we're going to give them a call b b. hi, john ice a c o r stephanie. so wow, we are just star north east on one of the beaches. tell me a little bit about the changes you've seen happening, particularly when it comes down to underneath the waters. since you 1st derived the coastline of cada's, been developing really rapidly in the last 10 years. and especially when it comes
11:51 am
to south of russ lafond to d in lancey, all it is coastline has been developing really quickly with the pearl and new sale . and all this project on the coast, and that's a big parameter casa coastal, the development is, are actually an affecting the habitat. the fishing is certainly an impact that's a lot more fishing now than it was. and nettie, you see a lot of nets now washed up on the structures on beaches. we didn't used to have that in the old days, but i was going at the moment. you also work with the oil and gas industry. i just want to get a sense of like in terms of compensation is there are, there are laws in place that try and compensate for what's being damage or how, how does that work? and the minister of environment is actually quite strong. and can i can, i can say from working in other places of the world, especially in engine ocean,
11:52 am
that cattle is got quite a good management for the marine environment with lowes and the practice proved to be efficient. so for example, when the nolan gas company is doing a new project that will probably have an impact from the marine environment, they have to make an impact assessment and report to the me and together with them it's room environment. they have to put in play some strategy of mitigation and compensation. going back to the reef installation and the which we just did a recent one with $200.00 units, which was $5600.00 tons, almost of rafe. 3 days after we put it there. we dived on it and it was fish living there already was before. it was just a baron piece of ground. 3 days later we had fish. moving in. the iranian
11:53 am
gulf is a very special c. it's extreme. it can go to 15 degrees in the winter to $35.00 degrees in the summer. so those like 20 degrees range of water temperature for cars, for example, this is completely insane on the great barrier reef. if the temperature varies by 2 degrees above the normal, they start bleaching and suffering and eventually dying in cut off the species we have and the adapted to the hush condition. so the, the, that's what we call then super cause because how can this cause survive in this kind of conditions where the rest of the course in the planet die with a very smaller range of temperature. so it's really interesting scientifically, that we have some species here in keta that can survive the was temperature that we planning in 2100 prediction of sea water temperature in
11:54 am
australia. that's why it's worse protecting them as well because they, they might be the future of course, as well. you know, the, we had back out to sea for one of our final trips. and it's the one the most excited about i, we are looking to find the world biggest fish. i do what's happening in the tune and i was born in. so it's,
11:55 am
it's making friends and so you find one female. and there's like $34.00 males around, and i sort of t, jack the the, you know, the eject also this param. and it's a big fight, the strong one, which will, you know, ejected span one and the biggest amount of eggs you know. and what happened, this frenzy, the sound, the sharks they will detected, you know, and they will gather all the shorts of it and they will, they will come to the bottom. because then you know, once the warning stop, you will find hundreds of shots and they come and feed on me and how many, how many will charts do you usually observe in this area? normally in one i guess the biggest, weaker we recorded by a drone is 350, with one shot. you know, but in our database we have more than 600. you know, it's well record, you know, and why do they aggregate in this area? in particular? the main thing in this area is the temperature that you see if you go 5 or 6
11:56 am
kilometers out of the water, temperature is about between 30 to 250, for average. 32 degrees centigrade in this area here with to about 2728. you know, it's the best, the ideal temperature for fish to breathe. you know. so when they breathe or spawn here, the show comes for the protein. they come specifically for the fish. again, it's caviar in the blue ah, a bucket list moment. they say, ah, a 1st glimpse of these enormous gentle giants it's hard to describe the feeling of swimming alongside them, watching them feed, ah, feeling like tiny, insignificant,
11:57 am
yet privileged guests in their world. ah, the sun sets on our journey to catch her as natural well. just minutes from the capital. doha. what's incredible. i like it and even my my computer screen off. it's this, there's mixing already. it's amazing. i remember it every day. what would you like to see done more to protect la buffalo, to be honest. like what, what would you like to be done? what is your dream? there is one thing. he, everything, as is it, don't touch it. this is the most important thing. second, it is for the new generation, the maybe the old the will be used to use this sir. busy a wible to hunt
11:58 am
isn't. yeah, it's culture is a long time ago. that plan is limitation of the food. but now it's the lively thing available. so with the kids education and how to protect it, not to driving your car over the nist look coming to hunt this bird for other reason like a sport like fall to. busy what we're going to go sex clinic, an fella we are doing. and it's the end of our wildlife travels. it spanned months, many and not aware of just how rich the small desert country is when it comes to nature. increased awareness hopefully will lead to more efforts to protect and conserve all these diverse spectacles of nature. not just to government policies, but it's also down to us as individuals to do our part in protecting the land and the waters that we are privileged to share.
11:59 am
ah, against a backdrop of syrian independence comes a story of military coups regime change. and insurgency. al jazeera world explores the life of id boucher shortly achieving his ambition to be syrian president in 1953. but outmaneuvered by his rivals and struck the 5 sessions bullied al. she shocked me. serious master of coors. oh, now jazeera i was gonna have is on chat. last lacking an asian africa. there'd be days where i'd be shooting and editing my iron stories in a refugee camp with no electricity. and right now where confronting some of the
12:00 pm
greatest challenges that humanity has ever faced. and i really believe that the only way we can do that is with compassion and generosity and compromise. because that's the only way we can try to solve any of these problem is together. that's why there is so important. we make those connections around 3 quarters of sub saharan africa's. cultural heritage is on display in western museums that didn't happen over night. we were robbed over time. the 1st episode of a new series reveals how europeans colonization remove tens of thousands of artifacts and the appeal struggle to reclaim restitution africa stolen on episode one blunder. oh, now jazeera ah, lead us from the world 7 richest nations gathering g.
