CURRENT STATUS | 17/06/2022
During the month of May and June '22, we successfully relocated to an area near the fishing harbor of Port Sudan. With local partners we are currently installing the legal, and operational infrastructure. Our newly acquired BAUER compressor is undergoing maintenance and will shortly being setup. The new location has many more advantages than the previous one we were using at the Faculty of marine sciences and fisheries. For one we have access to some healthy reefs in swimming distance, at the faculty grounds live coral coverage was of less than 10%, with severe heatwaves every year destroying life; which was seriously imperiling all our future biodiversity restoration efforts. Being separated from the university during this political impasse the country is suffering, also enables us to move, and advance more freely. (We were at a standstill since months)
The project documents have now been updated with the new infrastructure and location in mind, enabling us to start fundraising and applying for grants through and with the support of the volunteers working with the IADP - DIVE PROFESSIONALS.
