Seagrass Fish & Critter Hunt 2012, with Gaynor Rosier
Want to learn all about marine life? Then there's no better place to be than at Kenna Eco Dive Center on the Costa Brava in July 2012.
Gaynor Rosier, volunteer diver coordinator for the Eco Center’s voluntary conservation research work with the Silmar Project, will be running a free week-long workshop for Eco Center guests on seagrass fish and invertebrate identification, behaviour and photography. This one's not to be missed!
Design a Poster to Protect Posidonia, Earth's oldest known living organism
The Mediterranean seagrass Posidonia oceanica has recently been found to be Earth’s oldest living organism. It is certainly responsible for the great abundance of marine life that attracts so many divers and snorkelers to the Costa Brava each summer.
Join us at Kenna Eco Diving for a special dive to celebrate World Ocean Day on 8th June
We will be carrying out a Project AWARE underwater cleanup and we will also be hiding an amphora containing a "swim". SWIMMERS Treasure Hunt is the underwater equivalent of geo-caching, a fun activity for divers and snorkelers that has been launched on the Costa Brava this year.
Please get in touch if you would like to be a part of this activity:
Children from Kids United, L'Escala's casal (summer school) helped Project AWARE by taking part in a beach cleanup at Port den Perris in L'Escala on the 22nd of July 2010.
The kids had spent the week at the summer school learning about marine conservation and the harm caused to marine creatures by rubbish in the sea. They made a big effort and were able to spot the tiniest bits of rubbish.
The 20 children who ranged in age from 4 to 11 cleaned the beach of small pieces of litter and plastics and collected a total of almost 200 cigarette filters!
