Egypt launches initiative to save nature reserves

An Egyptian NGO is set to take the lead in protecting the country's nature reserves and failing tourism industry.

Egypt has launched a new initiative aimed at documenting nature reserves across the country with the hope of preventing them from falling into oblivion.

The initiative, called E’raf Mahmyetak (Know Your Nature Reserves), was launched by nonprofit organization Shabab Betheb Misr (Young People Loving Egypt) in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment to protect the country’s valued nature reserves from being left behind and boost the country’s tourism industry.
