Egypt Excursion 2021

Egypt Excursion 2021

We are just back from our first student excursion in 2021! Our 16 students explored during our two weeks trip marine life in Dahab, Egypt, and discovered over 260 species of fish and invertebrates. The impressive species richness resulted in numerous hours of determination based on thousands of photos and videos. Being highly motivated, we frequently skipped sleeping hours and started for early sunrise snorkeling and scuba diving.

Here are some of the most impressive photos.
