Press release, January 2018: Eco-volunteering missions in the Mediterranean Sea for the protection of marine life.

STARTING IN SAILBOAT AND TAKING ACTION FOR MARINE FAUNA IS POSSIBLE!

The association Cybelle Planète offers ecovolunteering missions in sailing in the Mediterranean Sea since 12 years. In 2018, from June to September, 13 weeks of study of the offshore fauna will allow ecovolunteers to list marine species: whales, sperm whales, dolphins, sea turtles, rays, sharks, fishes ...

On board, ecovolunteers collect information on species and the marine environment. These are added to a database freely shared with the scientific community. Ecovolunteers, led by a trained eco-guide, will have the opportunity to collect data from EXPERT level !

MEDITERRANEAN CYBELLE is a participatory science program at sea since 2009. The aim is to collect information on marine marine fauna and to make it freely available to the scientific community. Getting to know these species better protects them.
