MSC Hareer Station for Research (HSR) has been established in the North- Western part of Basrah marshes (namely, Al-Sallal Marsh). Originally, HSR was designed for scientific purposes by the Iraqi authorities with direct supervision from the Iraqi Marsh Reviving Centre. Later, it became part of the MSC’s jurisdiction.
HSR is the only scientific station located within the Basrah marshes and covers the eastern part of the Hammar Marsh (MasHab and Sallal marshes). The future of HSR provides great capabilities for field research and marsh environment monitoring research.
