Lost nets: An ecological disaster!

Posted 21.03.2012 - View comments

Dates: from 1st April to 31st Mai 2012

Where : Oceanium in Dakar, Kayar and Mbour in Sénégal

Details: Oceanium, our West-African ecopartner in Dakar invite you to participate in its “Clean the seas of abandoned nylon nets” campaign. These nets cause senseless painful deaths to hundreds of already endangered maritime species. The cleaning actions will be followed by awareness-raising campaigns in fishermen villages in order to promote the use of cotton instead of monofilament and multifilament nets. Divers, if you are in Senegal, come give a helping hand!
