The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the submarine equipment manufacturer, Beuchat, have partnered to create a unique interactive Facebook Live event … at 30 metres below the surface.
On Wednesday at 12:30 pm EST, this unusual dive, without getting wet, aims to give Facebook users a more direct experience of the biodiversity of the Mediterranean seabed.
A biologist-diver will visit the famous wreck of the “Toulonnais”, an old 27-metre tug long resting since 1991 outside the port of Monaco and since moved to the foot of the Museum. An artificial reef, it constitutes an ideal dive site sheltering rich fauna and flora – brown grouper, lobsters, schools of Anthias, moray eels, and more.
Facebook users will have the unique opportunity to send their questions via Facebook to interact live with the diver equipped with a mask with headphones and a microphone. For 20 minutes, the underwater world will be within reach of those who click.
To take part, sign in @OceanoMonaco @BeuchatDivingFR @SuuntoDivingFrance to follow and share Facebook Live.
Pursuing a joint commitment to the oceans, the Oceanographic Museum and Beuchat – who help equip the divers of the Museum – put the most advanced technologies at the service of the environment.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
