Camel instructors identify new dive sites

Camel instructors identify new dive sitesFrom 15-21 December we conducted research to identify new dive sites suitable for diver training, in collaboration with the Chamber for Diving and Watersports (CDWS) and Ras Mohammed National Park authorities. During a series of dives over several days, Camel instructors Francesco Germi, Deniz Aymer and Sven Kreische mapped the reef between Travco marina in Sharm El Sheikh and Marsa Ghozlani. The team collected data on wind and sea conditions, terrain, depths and quality and quantity of marine life. They identified 13 sites in which new moorings could be placed, making them suitable for diver training. The need for new training sites arises from the planned closure to dive boats of moorings at Ras Katy, to create zones for other users such as glass bottom boats. The team’s report has been submitted to CDWS and National Park authorities. It is expected that moorings will be installed at the new sites early in 2010.

Camel on TV at Copenhagen climate conference

Camel on TV at Copenhagen climate conferenceAn interview with Camel Chairman Hesham Gabr and instructor Cath Bates, plus underwater footage from our house reef at Royal Grand Sharm Resort, were screened during the recent climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The footage was shown on 18 December as part of a live television show which called for action by policy makers to prevent the death of coral reefs from global warming. The link-up between Copenhagen and the Red Sea was coordinated by Frank Schweikert, a marine biologist and filmmaker with Aldebaran, a German environmental research and media organization. Watch the Camel team on TV via You Tube (in English).
