Who We Are

In June 2009 Magdy Faik Abdul-Latif, Ali Abdel-Razek Abdel-Moneim and Mohamed Ahmed Taha announced their vision of presenting Red Sea In Glass with an aquarium that would encourage both education and economic growth. Coordination contributions of the owners reached totaling an EGP 60 million pounds allowed the Aquarium to open. The Aquarium’s founding chairmen is largely credited with the creation of the aquarium, from the design of the structure to the procurement of animals for the exhibits. The Aquarium is in Km 12 Safaga road, Hurghada on land bought by the three owners, and near the Magawish Village resort. Its exterior is meant to evoke a wide area. One of the largest when it opened in January 2015, the Aquarium encompasses more than 40,000 square meters (9.8 + acres) of covered space; its tanks holds 1,000.000 US gallons (3,500 m3) of fresh and salt water. After 48 months of construction the Aquarium opened on January 23, 2015. The non-profit Aquarium’s admission charges are not the highest in Egypt. The attendance far exceeded expectations, with thousands visitors in the first day. COLLECTION The Red Sea in Glass contains between 1,200 fish and other sea creatures, representing more than 100 hundred species. Nurse Shark on the viewing theater The Aquarium is the only institution of housing sharks 11-foot (3.5m), which are kept in 475,000 US gallon (1,800 m3) tank—the Aquarium as a whole was designed around the shark exhibit. An eagle ray joined the Ocean tank exhibit in 2014 as the first eagle ray on display in the country. The Aquarium is the only sites in Egypt displaying one. A second eagle ray was added in late 2014 by a 6-foot (1.8m) male. Eagle ray Exhibits The aquarium’s animals are displayed in 24 different galleries. Each corresponds to a specific environment. It features a number of touch tanks with rays and sharks as well as exhibits featuring sea turtles and the wildlife. The welcome tank also reflects regional environments. In addition to local specimens, this exhibit displays an unusual freshwater life. The other section of the aquarium, features animals from the polar and temperate regions in Egypt and contains most of the mammal species in the aquarium’s collection. This exhibit includes white tip tail sharks in the aquarium. The Ocean tank contains 475,000 gallons (1,800 m3) of water and several hundred fish from about 20 species. It measures 1072.83 ft (327m) and the depth ranges between 16 ft and 19 ft (5.1 and 6.1 m), making it one of the largest indoor aquatic habitat in the world. This exhibit is designed to feature the life of the barrier reef system, and showcases the aquarium’s sharks, as well as an 82 ft (25m) underwater tunnel and one of largest viewing windows. The aquarium also cultivates its own live coral, some of which can be seen on this large reef. Other animals in this gallery includes moray eels, jellyfish, clown fish, octopus, nemo fish, lion fish, trigger fish, napoleon fish and many other tropical fishes. Also, the “Titanic design” which features a walkthrough of what it was like on the ship of Titanic, we called the “Dark room passage” The designed still at the aquarium until to the present. The Red Sea in Glass exhibit focused on dispelling myths and sharing facts to help create a better understanding of sharks and other specimen in the marine habitat. Research and conservation According to aquarium founder Magdy Faik Abdul-Latif, Ali Abdel-Razek Abdel-Moneim and Mohamed Ahmed Taha , the aquarium’s conservation and environmental mission is just as important as its status as an attraction. Long before opening, the aquarium was already decided to help save endangered species through education and research programs and to collaborate with the universities all around the country. In 2014 two of the blue spotted sting ray gave birth at the aquarium. Octopus at the aquarium New facilities and programs The historic fossil from Wadi Al-Hitan (Whale Valley) paleontological site in the Al Fayyum Governorate of Egypt, some 150 km southwest of Cairo. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2005 for its hundreds of fossils of some of the earliest forms of whale, the archaeoceti (a now extinct sub-order of whales). The site reveals evidence for the explanation of one of the greatest mysteries of the evolution of whales. Mini Zoo features all different kind of birds and wild life animals, and the Arab Bedouin tent, they are traditionally divided into tribes, or clans, and the Bedouin form a part of, but are not synonymous with, the modern concept of the Arabs. Food restaurant will remain closed temporarily until its completion, therefor beverages are available. We plan to second phase of the aquarium and announce to build an EGP 170 million expansion of the area. The expansion covers 10,000 square m2 Located on the west side of the facility, the exhibit features space for wild animals, live presentations, observation windows, and opportunities for visitors to interact with animals. Construction will begin later and hoping to be complete before end of 2015. During part of the construction, the aquarium’s exhibits will not be affected and will proceed to open daily to the public. The aquariums around the world have been controversial. Some people view its criticism and to include interviews with scientists about conservation and animal research. But this has not been the case for some/many
