The Oceanographic Institute and M2PA – the Association for the Sustainable Financing of Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas – signed a partnership agreement on Friday, April 13, with the priority objective of financing an environmental fund for Mediterranean protected areas.
A pioneer in the field of discovery and conservation of marine environments, the Oceanographic Institute continues, as it has done since its founding in 1906, to promote, love and protect the oceans. Under this new agreement, €0.05 for every ticket sold will be donated, representing an annual contribution estimated at more than €30,000, thanks to the 650,000 visitors that the Oceanographic Museum welcomes each year.
The Oceanographic Institute will also spearhead an international network of aquariums and zoos working for marine protected areas in the Mediterranean, including Genoa, Tunis, Valencia, Banyuls, and Basel. This initiative will include exhibitions, educational activities, and communication campaigns.
