SEATREKKING FOR PURE OCEAN: The eco-citizen expedition for the calanques

On Sunday, October 3, the floods in Marseille, combined with poor management of storm water evacuation and a strike of garbage collectors have transformed its harbor into a natural outlet with ecological consequences that we have not finished quantifying.

For this reason, it is urgent to make the public aware of the benefits of a better management of our waste.

For this reason, our association WATCH THE SEA will organize the expedition SEATREKKING FOR PURE OCEAN; an eco-citizen expedition in the service of the creeks which will take place from October 15th to 17th.

Beyond immersing ourselves in our precious and wonderful creeks, it will be a question of giving them back a little of what we owe them and this expedition will be the opportunity to act concretely to protect the environment.

We will therefore continue the waste collection operations already carried out on the urban beaches of Marseille but this time in the heart of the Calanques National Park.

We will carry out some of the first post-flood water quality measurements as well as observations and censuses of their biodiversity.

Within the framework of the operation SEATREKKING FOR PURE OCEAN WATCH THE SEA acts in favor of the adoption of better practices but also to raise funds for the PURE OCEAN foundation.

Here is the link to the fundraiser.
