Empowering Citizen Science actions in Ustica MPA

Our citizen science training programs continue in the Mediterranean Marine Protected Area of Ustica, which is an associated partner of our MPA Engage project.

From September 21st to 25th, diving instructors join the 2020 Citizen Science Tour, organised by DAN Europe in collaboration with PADI EMEA.

Participants are trained on a series of monitoring protocols and learn how to contribute tracking the impacts of climate change in coastal areas.

They also learn how to train other recreational divers, disseminating the use of these common tools. 

All together we work at implementing valuable strategies for a sustainable use of natural heritage, promoting ocean literacy and environmental awareness.

Act local think Mediterranean!
