‘One Island, One Sea’
With the title “New initiatives for marine conservation in Menorca” the closing event gathered several marine conservation related organisations that had the opportunity to explain the work carried out in marine conservation projects in Menorca. Most of the organisations that participated have received funds during 2018 from the MEPF, like the OBSAM, GOB Menorca, Per la Mar Viva for implementing projects related to different subjects like the posidonia, the evaluation of the fish population, the illegal fishing, boat management, the improvement of marine meadows, awareness raising among the community towards our seas situation or the marine pollution and reduction of plastic rubbish.
Our Fund had the opportunity to co-organise these so interesting talk series with the Consell Insular of Menorca and the Jaume Ferrer Research Station, having a a great turnout and debate among the attendance. We want also to thank to the 30 speakers that participated in the panels from September to December.
