Cyclades Posidonia Alert

(2021) 37.000€ awarded

Seacology Foundation has awarded the CPF a grant to support seagrass conservation through a public outreach and education program! Our key goal will be to inform and sensitize boat/yacht owners, tourists, and the local population on the presence, importance, and vulnerability of Posidonia seagrass in the Cyclades, as well as to mitigate anchoring impact in at least 4 selected islands in the Cyclades.

To achieve this, we will work together with the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) and some of our dedicated local partners. Stay tuned!

Great news! Edmiston – the Luxury Yacht Experts will co-fund our project and will expand the activities to the Small Cyclades!
