Public Awareness in Zaranik
Coast Guards to Guard Marine Turtles Too
Wednesday 30 November 2005, by Inju Galal

A public awareness campaign to preserve marine turtles’ nests and eggs from destruction was conducted on beaches in the Zaranik vicinity, in North Sinai, Egypt.

Since face-to-face interaction is the preferred mode of communication in the Middle East, the campaign took the form of one-to-one meetings. It covered an area of more than 30 Km of beaches, addressing coast-guards at every point.

The rangers who carried out the campaign informed the guards of the importance of protecting marine turtles’ nests and prohibiting people from digging them up. The result was a general concession from the guards to stop anyone from digging along the beach where marine turtle nests are.

The idea of this campaign was first generated at a workshop for rangers entitled "Communication, Education and Public Awareness", which was held in Cairo, in January 2004. In this workshop rangers from all three Egyptian protectorates were introduced to methods of designing and conducting such awareness campaigns.
