Mayor Rui Moreira presents the Keys of the City of Porto to Mawlana Hazar Imam.

In the historic coastal city of Porto in Northern Portugal, Mawlana Hazar Imam was presented with the Keys of the City during a ceremony at Porto City Hall on 2 May 2019.

The Living Sea exhibition featured photographs of marine life including dolphins, sea lions, sharks, whales, turtles, and other creatures.

In Lisbon last month, Prince Hussain inaugurated his photo exhibition entitled The Living Sea at Portugal’s National Museum of Natural History and Science. Prince Hussain was joined by Ms Elizabeth Hoag (now Princess Fareen), Prince Amyn, Prince Rahim, and Princess Salwa.

The Living Sea exhibition features over 100 photographs depicting the beauty, fragility, and diversity of marine life, reflecting Prince Hussain’s ecological and environmental concerns. It represents a collaboration between Portugal’s National Museum of Natural History and Science, the University of Lisbon, and Focused on Nature; an organisation created by Prince Hussain in 2014 to share his passion and personal mission of conservation, and to raise awareness and encourage actionable initiatives on global issues negatively impacting the environment.
