Red Sea Reserves take legal action to protect dolphins

The Red Sea Reserves Authority, in cooperation with HEPCA and the tourism administration of the Red Sea Governorate has launched a crackdown on tourist boats which commit environmental violations against dolphins at the Shoab al-Fanous area. 
International associations for the protection of dolphins have filed multiple claims against boat owners, accusing them of scaring the dolphins and forcing them to migrate. 
Director of the Red Sea Reserves Authority Yasser Saeed said a committee formed by the authority, HEPCA, and the tourism administration of the Red Sea governorate has inspected the Shoab al-Fanous area in the Red Sea and witnessed six environmental violations by boat crews. Official claims have been filed against the violators, he added.
