Yesterday, Monday 11 April, the press conference to launch M.A.R.E. was held at the Sorgenia headquarters in Milan. The project was presented to an audience enriched by the presence of Admiral Pierpaolo Ribuffo, who intervened to underline the support of the Italian Navy as sponsoring body.
The commitment of the partners Yamamay, Polaroid, Sorgenia and Synergie is also significant. By signing a Manifesto, they have sealed their commitment to the aims of this important citizen science project.
One, the catamaran that will see the CVC crew and One Ocean Foundation biologists working side by side, will set sail from La Maddalena on 30 April and will sail around the Tyrrhenian Sea for 12 weeks, monitoring and collecting samples to take stock of the state of health of our seas.
