Partner of the MED Algeria Expedition 2014 “Stop plastic in the sea”, the Larimar association invites you to several stopovers from 3 to 11 August 2014 on the algerian coats. This campaign at sea will provide studies about the floating microplastics’ pollution, its impact and its evolution. Moreover, it will contribute to marine biodiversity’s studies. The information collected during the first campaigns has already been used in several studies and scientific publications, highlighting this pollution’s impact.
Take part in the MED Expedition allow the algerian participants the possibility to contribute to marine environment and biodiversity’s protection in the Mediterranean sea. The navigation programme depends on the sampling programme, on the meteorological conditions and scientific imperatives. The missions will take place on a sailboat during ten days and are supervised by a scientific team and a skipper.
