information centre, which can serve as a research, conservation and education facility as well as an
infotainment channel. With the growing number of threats to marine life, it is important to preserve
and breed unique and endangered species. This centre can also be equipped with such infrastructure
so as to enable preservation and breeding of threatened marine species.
