Egypt conservation is a growing development which aims to protect the country’s remaining endangered and threatened species of bird, plants and animals.
Egypt was one of the first civilisations in the world, starting 12, 000 years ago, and this human habitation had a marked effect on the country’s wildlife population as many animals were hunted and used for meat and skins.
Animals such as lion, hippo and cheetah are now extinct in Egypt, and many others are highly endangered or vulnerable.
Preservation Egypt projects include a number of protected areas or nature reserves in the country, which aim to protect the habitats and species within these areas.
Parks include St. Catherine's, Elba Protected area, Gebel Elba and Ras Mohamed. Mount Sinai and the Red Sea areas are also key protected areas.
Certain species of wildlife are strictly prohibited to hunt, including the manatee and the Sand Boa desert snake.
