Reef Check Italy Launches New Monitoring Initiative
Reef Check Italia onlus will launch WE MAC 2010 (Week End of the Coastal Environment Monitoring) on June 5-6. Reef Check Italia Foundation will coordinate a series of activities along the entire Italian coast involving volunteer scuba divers who wish to contribute to improve knowledge about the marine environment.
To participate, no particular certification is required, the most important thing is the enthusiasm to contribute to a scientific project in collaboration with researchers. The activity consists of the research of some species to better define their range of distribution along the Italian coastline and will be organized as a treasure hunt. Before diving, for each species included in the CEM project, the researchers will explain the habitat characteristics where every singular species usually can be found.
