We invite you to the Virtual Photo Exhibition “WORKING TOGETHER TO REDUCE BYCATCH IN THE MEDITERRANEAN“ created in the context of the MedBycatch project.
Join us in celebrating the World Wildlife Day on March 3d 2022 and embark on a journey across the Mediterranean through a photographic panorama of pictures and moments, all in the framework of the MedBycatch project.
The incidental capture of vulnerable species in fishing gear, also known as ‘bycatch’, is a key threat for the Mediterranean biodiversity. Every year, thousands of sea turtles, sharks and rays, sea birds, marine mammals and corals and sponges are being affected.
The exhibition ‘WORKING TOGETHER TO REDUCE BYCATCH IN THE MEDITERRANEAN’ aims to draw attention to the common conservation efforts undertaken by local communities, fishers and partner organizations of the MedBycatch project in Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Italy and Croatia to protect vulnerable species and to drive discussions towards implementing solutions for sustainable fisheries in the Mediterranean.
The MedBycatch Virtual Photo Exhibition, organized by MEDASSET and all project partners and curated by Photographos Magazine will be hosted on Kunstmatrix platform from March 3rd until October 31st 2022.
MEDASSET invites all of you to visit the virtual photo exhibition and share your comments and feelings. Enjoy!
