Our marine life centre, situated along the Port Ghalib coastline, offers a unique blend of facilities, including a wet lab, museum, and sustainable breeding house. Our primary mission is education, breeding, and restoring the Tridacna Maxima population in the Red Sea.
Heading our breeding efforts is Dr. Mahmoud Hanafy, a renowned Marine Biologist, a distinguished HEPCA board member, and a Suez Canal University Professor.
In 2021, we invested in significant renovations at our breeding site, including installing ten new fibreglass tanks, updated pumps and blowers, and adding a pergola and tank reservoir. These enhancements have effectively tripled our wet lab’s capacity, bolstering our ability to conduct vital research and conservation work under natural circumstances.
We invite you to explore our centre and join us in our commitment to marine life education and preserving the Tridacna Maxima population in the Red Sea!
