BioMAP Project
The BioMap project has as its primary objective the development and strengthening of biodiversity research, monitoring and assessment across Egypt.
It will research and build an extensive database to map the distributions of species across Egypt, encourage and enhance the capacity of park rangers to monitor and collect data, raise public awareness of the need to conserve Egypt's biodiversity for future generations, and support work in local communities that makes sustainable use of local resources, preserving and celebrating the traditions and heritage of people in the context of their environment.

  OPWall Project

Operation Wallacea is a series of biological and social science expedition projects that operate in remote locations across the world. These expeditions are designed with specific wildlife conservation aims in mind - from identifying areas needing protection, through to implementing and assessing conservation management programmes.

What is different about Operation Wallacea is that large teams of university academics who are specialists in various aspects of biodiversity or social and economic studies and are concentrated at the target study sites. Research Assistants joining the surveys therefore have the option of individualising their own itinerary from a range of training and science options at each of the sites. It also provides an excellent environment for students to complete their dissertations or theses and over 60% achieve Firsts for their field studies with Operation Wallacea.
