Like much of Egypt - and many other developing nations - Dahab has a rubbish problem.
During the Dahab Bedouin Festival, we are collecting locations of 'rubbish hot spots' (around collection bins, etc). On 18 April - designated Environmental Day for the Festival, and also very near to Earth Day, we'll tackle as many hot spots as we can.
The clean-up will focus on the residential area Assalah in particular, where local people are facing an extreme rubbish problem.

I will be doing some Technical dives in the area and collecting rubbish from the Lighthouse dive site along the beach front with the aim to collect debris from this very busy dive site. I to enlist others to help me and plan to log consecutive data on marine debris on the Project AWARE site using the AWARE data sheet guide.
