From the official CDWS Newsletter
We have received many complaints recently regarding illegal fishing activities taking place in Ras Mohamed National Park along with videos, pictures and written statements from concerned members.
CDWS is lobbying the authorities and sending these complaints to the prime minister office and all related authorities to stop these illegal fishing activities as soon as possible.
We will keep you posted with any new development and please keep on sending us evidence of the illegal fishing via firstname.lastname@example.org
