Where he works: Egypt- Red Sea Protectorates, Responsible for Marsa Alam Office at the moment
Job title: Environmental Researcher
What is your favorite part of your job?
Conservation and research that deals with conservation
What challenge comes up regularly as part of your work?
The challenges I face for the moment is finding well experienced people to work with me, and finding some funds which I need for a big project (Monitoring Program).
If you could ask Rod Salm anything, what would you ask?
I asked him already and he helped me in designing the monitoring program- specifically, with what is the best to do according to the resources available.
What is the scariest thing you’ve seen in your work?
The scariest thing I have seen for the Red Sea is that we need more effort for conservation in the region, and with the current situation, I cannot see that in the future. And for the ocean, I think the scariest thing for now is climate change, and bycatch which is the biggest problem as I see for conservation at the moment.
In 10 years, where do you see yourself living and working?
It is pretty far in the future, but for me I hope to do more for conservation in the Red Sea. Now I'm trying to finish my Master’s degree which is dealing with conservation, and later I will try to find a job dealing with conservation and being more flexible and applied with conservation in my region.
