Help us help the sea!
Become part of something greater than yourself by joining Eco-Navigation, an initiative from Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation meant to tap into the plethora of people who enjoy the beautiful seas of the Mediterranean. We share these marine environments with an uncommonly diverse collection of creatures, and the efforts of researchers alone are not enough to maintain this biodiversity. The observations of sailors, divers, fishermen, and all other users of the sea are crucial for helping make a difference in the region.
Eco-Navigation provides a system for anyone to report sightings of pollution or marine life such as dolphins, whales, seals, turtles, invasive species, jellyfish blooms, and any other unusual marine organisms, with submitted photographs being encouraged. These contributions of citizen science are important data for combating rising climate and human threats to the Mediterranean.
