Study leader and PhD candidate Qamar Schuyler said turtles ate more plastic than any other form of debris.

Hola a tod@s,

Un año ha pasado desde el último día internacional de limpieza de la playa y ahora ponemos de nuevo en marcha este evento que permite limpiar la playa de Aiguablava y más.

El expediente ya esta en las manos de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Esperemos tener una respuesta rapidemente.
