Grassroot initiatives are taking place to raise awareness about the need and importance of protecting heritage sites from destruction. These are mainly taking place on the social media platform, demonstrated by various Facebook sites which promote cultural heritage preservation. One example is the ‘Egypt’s Heritage Task Force’ page, founded by Monica Hanna, a strong supporter of cultural heritage preservation. 

The Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA) has also been successful in recovering stolen objects and preventing looted materials from leaving the country.  

Advocating for the protection of cultural heritage sites must continue, and the work from the MSA and grassroot initiatives seem positive for the future.
