The Red Sea Environmental Centre (RSEC) is a collaboration of MareMundi (NGO registered in Austria) and the individual enterprise Christian von Mach (registered in Germany). RSEC promotes coral reef education and conservation at the Red Sea. The RSEC runs a fieldstation for marine science and marine conservation at the southeast coast of the Sinai in Dahab. Our partner dive center at the Red Sea is Sinai Divers Backpackers.

Conservation volunteering, internships
Coral Reefs are under threat worldwide, including the Red Sea. We can help make a difference by learning more about coral reefs and collecting valuable data to establish the state of coral reefs. Share this with a professional staff and other like-minded volunteers. Conservation volunteering is available for 3 weeks or more (long-term volunteers) or for 1-2 weeks, suitable for divers and snorkelers as well as for students and non-students.
