HEPCA: violator of the month

Red Sea environment

What's new
 
HEPCA
HEPCA

On the 16th of May, 2007, the bay at Marsa Abu Dabab was closed to all water-based activities. This was agreed and carried out by all operators of the area to protect the endangered Dugong.
Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA) took this decision due to concern over the harassment of these creatures, and the threat this posed to their continued presence.

This agreement was to include diving, snorkeling, boating and any other activities that could interfere with the natural behaviour of the resident dugong (sea cow) population.

What is a Dugong?

The dugong has a mythical history; once considered mermaids, these curious mammals are herbivores whose survival depends on their eating just two types of seagrass found on the seafloor of the Red Sea. This delicate habitat is at risk from dredging and filling for building developments, and also herbicidal run-off from landscaping projects. Dugongs are also particularly vulnerable to passing boats and fishing nets, as are the many turtles that frequent here.

Enemy and violator of the month: M/Y CASSIOPEIA

The violator of the month‚ is an initiative taken by HEPCA on regular basis along other legal violation procedures.

Even upon repeatedly requesting the boat to respect the closure scheme of the Abo Dabab bay, M/Y Cassiopeia has been over and over sighted operating in the bay.
Large numbers of divers are diving off the boat straight into the sea grass area with no consideration to the already extremely weakened Dugong inhabiting this area.

Spirit of Norway wins in Egypt

Bjorn Gjelsten
Bjorn Gjelsten

Norway's Bjorn Gjelsten alongside Britain's Steve Curtis produced an impressive performance aboard Spirit of Norway to win Saturday's Egyptian Grand Prix so keeping their world title hopes alive. Qatar 96 finished second with championship leader, Victory 77 third.

With the course shortened to 57.59Nm due to the poor sea conditions, Spirit of Norway took full advantage of its pole position, hitting the front from the green flag and gradually building an impressive lead over their main rivals, Qatar 96 and Victory 77. Gjelsten and Curtis then went to win by 30 seconds.

"It was pretty rough out there but we had a very good run and this was the result we needed," said Gjelsten. "Our set-up was good and we knew we would be hard to beat in these conditions. Steve did another great job on the throttles; we were right on the buoys at each turn and soon built a comfortable lead. The top four or five boats are all pretty similar in terms of performance, but today was more about the pilots than anything else. Now we have to go to the next race in Doha and do the same."

Dear Sir, Dear Madam,

I hope you will permit me to send you the missing post of my daughter Melanie.
Almost hundred days have passed since I last saw her. She left home without saying goodbye. Although the Swiss Police and friends have spent many hours seeking clues to her disappearance, there has been no concrete information about her whereabouts. However, with the utmost probability, she is in Egypt / South Sinai. Please help me find my daughter Melanie, by posting the missing poster, everywhere you can. Thank you very much for your help in advance. Melanie is age 15 D.O.B 1st October 1991 she has been missing since 29th June 2007. She is 1.62m weights approx 54kg, has blonde hair and blue eyes.

Yours sincerely
Röbi Hari

2. Once the glue dries, coat the little shell with orange acrylic paint. When the paint is dry, use the end of a paper clip to poke a hole in the top of the pumpkin.

3. Make a stem and curly vines out of green pipe cleaners or twisted crepe paper, and push the ends through the hole. Use a black marker to draw on a jack-o'-lantern face.

Cantaloupe
Nutrition Facts
Article
Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe

It is no wonder that the cantaloupe with its refreshingly rich flavor and aroma and minimal number of calories is the most popular variety of melon in the United States. Although they have become increasingly available throughout the year, their season runs from June through August when they are at their best.

The cantaloupe derives its name from the ltalian papal village of Cantalup, where it was first cultivated around 1700 A.D. It belongs to the same family as the cucumber, squash, pumpkin and gourd, and like many of its relatives, grows on the ground on a trailing vine. Cantaloupe are also referred to as a netted melon because it has a ribless rind with a distinctive netted skin. Inside of the melon there is a hollow cavity that contains seeds encased in a web of netting. Cantaloupe is also known as rockmelon in several parts of the world.

Health Benefits

Our food ranking system qualified cantaloupe as an excellent source of vitamin A on account of its concentrated beta-carotene content. Once inside the body, beta-carotene can be converted into vitamin A, so when you eat cantaloupe it's like getting both these beneficial nutrients at once.
