Free Dolphins of Shaab Sataya
June 2008. The Red Sea is one of the largest reservoirs of marine biodiversity in the world. Every day several dozen long-nosed dolphins (Stenella Longirostris) can be found in the lagoon of Shaab Sataya in southern Egypt. This extraordinary gathering is the focus of a scientific study conducted by Patrick Louisy, a doctor of oceanology and biology with the collaboration of ecological volunteers fascinated by marine live. The goal of the work is to better understand the behavior and the lifestyle of these animals in order to gather crucial information to help prevent anarchistic development of tourism which threatens the lives of dolphins.
