While our coastal waters are crowded with jellyfish and further from the coast there are increasing numbers of baracudas and new marine organisms appearing which are not typical of our sea, there are many other marine animals that are decreasing in numbers such as octopi, groupers and shark species. What is happening to our sea?
Toward understanding our wonderful sea and its natural resources and vulnerabilities, The Biological Conservation Research Foundation (BICREF) is organising summer seminars to be held on the 8th and 15th of July.
Various topics will be covered, from jellyfish to turtles and dolphins; from coastal biodiversity and the value of marine conservation areas to various marine animal behaviours; from ecotourism to impacts of various fishing gear. Many of your curiosities about our sea are discussed, making these events relevant for all those that have our sea at heart.
Participants are able to learn up to date facts, side by side with methods used to continue assisting ongoing BICREF marine conservation research. It is also an opportunity to understand why and how BICREF's voluntary work is essential toward promoting marine conservation around the Maltese Islands.
Persons interested in joining these activities may contact BICREF on firstname.lastname@example.org or write to: BICREF, PO BOX 30, Hamrun.
