FAVIGNANA (ITALPRESS/MNA) – The value of the sea is one of the activities carried out by Marevivo for the “Egadi Islands” Marine Protected Area as part of the AMPPA project. In particular, this involves the set up of laboratories and educational courses aimed at primary and secondary school students on the following topics: MPAs and protected species and ecosystems.
Many initiatives are carried out in schools, with the aim of involving students through a training course of growth and awareness on marine ecosystem emergencies.
“My protected marine area: what can I do for my territory” is the name of the workshop, organized by Marevivo, which took place on 18 September in Favignana, involving three elementary classes. The aim was to raise awareness on the area through the study of history, natural heritage and traditions linked to fishing. The characteristics of the MPAs, the protection actions for the defense of the territory were also explained and a field trip and an ecological day are planned.
