The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), represented by the Department of Protection and Wildlife, has succeeded in cultivating and propagating many important, rare, and endangered wild plants, in addition to local medicinal and aromatic plants. The seedlings of these types of plants will be used in continuous environmental campaigns for land cultivation and meadows rehabilitation in the State of Qatar.














 
This came within the framework of the ministry's plans to preserve and protect the local wild plants, propagate the important plants, and returning them to the land, meadows, and natural reserves.

The ministry, via the Wildlife section of the Protection and Wildlife Department, has also expanded the Field Gene Bank to be a comprehensive national bank for all wild, fungal, pastoral, medicinal, and aromatic species in the Al-Ghyshamia area and Rawdat Al Faras station, to benefit from it in the land rehabilitation programs, rehabilitation of pastures and meadows, wild cultivation and combating desertification in the State.

The number of plant species that have been preserved in the Field Gene Bank so far has reached almost 130.
