Biosphere Expeditions

EDA is proud to have worked with Biosphere Expeditions on a unique diving expedition in the Musandam. Biosphere Expeditions is an award-winning, non-profit-making organisation offering hands-on expedition-conservation-volunteer work as an adventure with a purpose for everyone. They bridge the gap between scientists at the forefront of conservation work in need of funds and helpers, and enthusiastic laypeople who in their holiday time, through their hands-on assistance and with their expedition contribution want to support them.

Their Musandam dive expedition was a pioneering study to map this unprotected underwater environment. Data on the current biological status of the reefs and of population levels of key indicator species are therefore crucial for educational purposes and to be able to put forward ideas for future marine protection areas.
