University of Glasgow Egypt Expedition 2018

To raise money for marine conservation and community outreach in the coastal town of El Quseir in Egypt.

by EgyptExpedition2018 in El Quseir

We did it
On 26th March 2018 we successfully raised £260 with 8 supporters in 56 days

We are a group of students from Glasgow University studying a mix of Zoology and Marine & Freshwater Biology. As members of the Expedition Society, between us we organise, fund-raise and undergo an expedition every year: this summer in 2018, we are heading to El Quseir to explore the Red Sea! This beautiful marine environment is host to over 200 species of coral and 1,200 of fish, 10% of which are endemic to the Red Sea. The funds you donate will go towards community outreach, plus our dive expeditions, which will help us learn more about the Red Sea and how to conserve the vast biodiversity that resides there.
