Egypt - iNaturalist World Tour

Egypt is the 97th stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. While there are a few top observers such as @yasminam with observations clustered around the capital of Cairo, most top observers have observations clustered along the red sea. Most of the observations from here are marine (e.g. fish and marine invertebrates). The top observer in Egypt, @lovelyclemmy, has a marine focus and observations up and down the Red Sea along with other top observers such as @nakarb, @vmoser, @seastung, @awaheed, @maridom, @tuenf, @jujurenoult, and @ronald63. You can read more about @nakarb in this Observation of the Week post from Malaysia and more about @seastung this Observation of the Week post from Mozambique. And from Egypt, don't miss this Observation of the week post about a small giant clam seen by from @wernerdegier along the red sea.

There was a peak in observations per month in November 2017 driven by a visit by @nakarb but otherwise the number of observations per month has been slowly increasing since 2018.

The top observation category is fish reflecting all the underwater Red Sea observations and the top identifier overall and for fish is @maractwin. @sammyboy2059 leads in bird IDs and @phelsumas4life leads in 'other animals' (in this case marine invertebrates). Other top identifiers include @karimhaddad, @kemper, and @khaledayyach

What can we do to get more people in Egypt using iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread.

Is this the first one to have fish in the top 5 let alone in first? This is also the first one to shock me, I figured Egypt would have been way earlier.
