Volontunteer / Assistent
Hi, my name is Sabine! I am a student of Biology from Salzburg, currently gaining some great hands-on experience on marine biology and scientific research and teaching at RSEC station in Dahab, Egypt. My first weeks here in Dahab mainly consisted of lots of diving and getting to know the local reef fauna and flora, and next to my own scientific project about excessive algae-growth at coral reef sites I tried as best as possible to understand and learn about Red Sea marine organisms, their behaviour and ecosystems, so as to be able to pass it on to the students of 2017/18 Winter Academy. Since I found great pleasure in Dahab’s surrounding nature and landscape and also enjoy working with students and all those who are interested in marine biology, I decided to spend more time here in Dahab over the next years, working in an assisting position with field biologist Nina. My wish is to help people understand the complex processes and interactions of Red Sea coral reefs, shining a light onto an environment so colourful and enchanting one never gets bored observing.
