Since our inception, HEPCA has grown into an international team of scientists and
industry experts. We are actively working towards the protecting and preserving
of the natural resources of the Red Sea, as well as promoting conservation and sustainable
HEPCA works closely with a number of Egyptian governmental departments including;
the Red Sea Governorate (RSG); the National Conservation Sector; and the National
Parks of Egypt.
As a non-profit organization, HEPCA would not be able to implement its projects
and campaigns without the cooperation of its partners, members, and supporters.
Our NGO is supported by a huge network of members, who assist with funding via membership
fees and voluntary donations. The members nominate 11 individuals to represent them
on the Board of Directors, who in turn lend direction to HEPCA’s Executive Director
and support staff.
HEPCA does not receive funding from any kind of fee system, whether it is for national
park fees, marine park fees, environmental tax, reef protection tax or any other
name given to a tax collection system used by the diving, snorkeling and tourist
Our achievements in the last 20 years would not have been possible without the support
of the members, members of the community, the diving and tourism industry, and the
dedicated staff working in these areas. We survive on the support of our membership
with generous donations of time, equipment, and facilities by the community members
and project sponsorship.
