Our mission

With our projects in the areas of research, protection and education, we bring about sustainable improvements in the area of ​​marine wildlife tourism and support the preservation of the ecosystem. We strive for a respectful and regulated encounter between humans and animals in the wild.

We promote understanding of dolphins through research and environmental education. We are networked with national and international organizations and seek dialogue with local decision-makers from politics, business and the public.

protection is necessary Why

Wildlife tourism is a billion-dollar industry worldwide. Hurghada in Egypt is one of the most popular locations for part of this industry due to the incredible diversity of marine life in the Red Sea. Swimming with wild dolphins has become a common tourist attraction here and is offered by numerous agencies in the area.

Unfortunately, the dolphins and their health are rarely the top priority on these tours. Due to the focus on quantity instead of quality, the animals and their habitat suffer from constant harassment from visitors. Their behavior, reproduction and overall lifestyle are negatively affected. The main reasons for this are underwater noise from boats, hunting of animals and disturbance by tourists during bedtime.

Responsible dolphin tourism

Based on our many years of research and collaboration with local and international organizations, we have developed a code of conduct so that people can interact with dolphins in a good way. The combination of our research both above and under water and the opportunity to share our findings with those responsible and tourists on site brings us step by step closer to our goal of responsible dolphin tourism.
