Year of activities: 2016-2017

Fundaing: Biodiversidad Foundation-Spanish Ministry of Environment; ECOEMBES

Description: Project with the aim to make the younger generations aware of the importance of maintaining the seas and oceans clean, and to involve them actively in the solution. To do so, a protocol has been produced for the collection and categorization of marine litter from the beaches, and educative material has been developed in order to work on this issue in the classroom. The project has achieved the implication of schools in the conservation of the local beaches through a “stewardship” program.
