Sea Turtles Conservation Program

place Marsa Alam

Assist with research and enjoy close encounters with the sea turtles during their peak nesting season. Join us in the southern Red Sea to see and study the amazing sea turtles at one of the world’s most important nesting sites. The area hosts one of the world’s densest green sea turtles nesting colony, and we have timed our expedition to coincide with the peak of their nesting season.

• Visit the beaches that host the Red Sea’s densest population of green sea turtles.
• Scuba diving and snorkeling in turtles feeding grounds.
• Participate in Turtle Identification Program.
• Help local researchers protect and monitor nesting sea turtles.
• Help researchers to gather critical information that can be used to protect their population from further decline.
• Survey sea grass beds and coral reefs to determine the foraging patterns and features of habitats that attract most sea turtles in order to protect these essential areas.
• Assist with the conservation work to study and protect sea turtles in the Red Sea.
