Cyclades Posidonia Alert is a joint initiative of the Cyclades Preservation Fund (CPF) and the Hellenic Center for Marine Research (HCMR) funded by the Seacology Foundation and Edmiston Yachting but also supported by local organizations and authorities of the Cyclades Islands, that aims at raising awareness on the importance of Posidonia meadows for the Cyclades communities and ecosystem, and therefore, on the need of responsible yachts-anchoring to protect Posidonia Meadows in the Cyclades Islands.

In the context of this raising-awareness campaign, researchers from HCMR are mapping the hot spots that need to be prioritized for implementing protective measures, while, at the same time, CPF is working on field research, recording the local experience and highlighting the proper measures to achieve responsible yachts-anchoring, in order to protect the Posidonia Meadows in the Cyclades Islands.
