New 2006 Egypt Project!
Added to website: 13 October 2005

CCC has been invited by the competent authorities in coral reef management along the Red Sea Coastline to commence a three-month pilot project in Southern Egypt in 2006.

The ‘Red Sea Coral Reef Conservation Pilot Project’ will begin in February 2006 and is a partnership between CCC Expeditions, the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Association (the authority responsible for the conservation of coral reef resources within the Red Sea Governorate) and the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Agency (an Egyptian registered NGO concerned with the sustainable use of the natural resources within the Red Sea).

The pilot project will be divided into two phases. Volunteers can either join the project for Phase One, Phase Two or Phases One and Two. The project’s headquarters will be located at Um Tondoba Eco-lodge, 14 Km South of Marsa Alam, overlooking the Red Sea Shore. Accommodation will either be in African-style huts, or in traditional Beduin tents.

The proposed survey region is the fringing reefs and pinnacles supporting reefal development accessed from Marsa Alam. This area is rich in relatively unspoilt reef systems but is potentially threatened by anthropogenic damage caused by uncontrolled and unmitigated development. The impacting agents include increased loading of nutrients resulting from inappropriate waste water handling facilities, the inundation of the reef systems with sediments mobilised by near-shore construction and land reclamation activities. Additionally an active tourism industry with poor operations management can directly damage reefs by inappropriate anchoring practices and physical contact by divers and snorkellers.

Survey results from the programme will highlight areas of key biodiversity and hence provide a scientific rationale for future ecosystem management to meet the dual needs of economic development and biodiversity conservation.

On successful completion of the pilot programme a two-year study is envisaged. In addition to surveys, the project will focus on in-country capacity building through the CCC Scholarship Programme, training courses in Best Practice Tourism Operations and technical capacity building courses as required by Government Agencies and Higher Education Institutes in the region.

The project will be officially launched by the Egyptian Governor, members of the Egyptian Cabinet, HEPCA board members and senior delegates from CCC and in mid-December, Hurghada.

Therapeutic Tourism
Red Sea

Safaga is the best place in the world for the treatment and therapy of psoriasis, it is surrounded by high mountains works as a natural fence against wind and sand storms. The climate is moderate and the concentration of the sun rays and the Ultraviolet rays help in the treatment and therapy of psoriasis.

The sea water has a high proportion of saltiness about 35% in similar places, so the person who swims in the area will find himself floating easily on water surface. The gravity is low which helps in treating some diseases such as the vascular deficiency and high flow of the blood to the limbs.

The high proportion in the saltiness of sea water has a great effect in treating psoriasis and the high density of ultraviolet rays in the area help in curing different skin diseases.

Black Sand

Scientific research results proved that the sand in Safaga has three radioactive minerals they are Uranium, Thorium and Potassium with the percentage of 40% which is safe enough in the treatment of psoriasis, joint pains, joint oedema and skin inflammation.
The humidity is low and the ultraviolet rays help in curing different diseases.

Why Safaga?

  • The dry, moderate climate and the sun shinning all the year round make Safaga the best place in the world for the complete therapy of some incurable diseases.

  • Patients with history of heart , kidney and liver diseases are advised never to go places which are under the sea level for fear of harmful effects on their health.

  • Safaga climate is suitable for these patients and causing no harm to their health.

  • Safaga has the least amount of "Bromum" that causes skin inflammation.

Farfalle tossed with fresh tuna fish, olives and cherry tomatoes

A wholesome, irresistible dish thanks to the use of ingredients like tuna which, in recent times, is increasingly eaten fresh, especially in Southern Italy.


  • Farfalle 350 g
  • Fresh tuna fish 300 g
  • Cherries tomato 200 g
  • Pitted olives 100 g
  • White onion 50 g
  • Extra virgin olive oil 30 g
  • Dry white wine 1 glass
  • Italian parsley 1 branch
  • Parmesan cheese to taste
  • Red hot pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste

Suggested Wine
This dish, with its simple, Mediterranean flavours, is best accompanied by a light young white wine with a soft palate and herbaceous and fruity notes, such as a Silvaner dell'Alto Adige or a Capri Bianco Campano.


1. Gently fry the chopped onion in the oil for a few minutes to soften it, add the diced tuna fish and fry for 2 minutes. Add the white wine and allow to evaporate.

2. Add the quartered cherry tomatoes and olives and cook for another 2 minutes. Finish the sauce by adding the chopped parsley, salt and chilli pepper.

3. Cook the Barilla Farfalle in plenty of salted water, drain when "al dente" and then dress with the prepared sauce.


The tuna fish can be replaced if necessary with swordfish. For a finishing touch, you can garnish the dish with some fried leek, which gives great results.
