Three members of the natural heritage documentation program team went to Wadi El Rashrash: an eastern desert wadi system some 60 km south of Cairo. Wadi El Rashrash is recorded in the World Conservation Monitoring Center database on protected areas as Egypt's first declared protectorate. It has in fact been the royal hunting reserve and was taken into protection in 1900.
