Covering a surface an area of 1.7 million, the reserve was established for the protection of mangrove (Qurum) forests and protection of resident and migratory sea bird habitats.
The reserve contains only one type of mangrove trees, which is the only type growing in the Sultanate. For marine animals, the reserve contains 27 types of crustaceans, 48 types of mollusks, 40 species of fish, apart from shrimp, crabs and oysters. The reserve has been a refuge for migratory birds coming from Africa and Russia.
MECA in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism has invited an expression of interest from investors for the development and management of nature-based tourism activities in Qurum Nature Reserve.
