Diving for a Sustainable Tomorrow

Healthy Seas returns to the Aeolian Islands from 3rd - 8th June 2019 to celebrate World Oceans Day. Together with Ghost Fishing, Aeolian Islands Preservation Fund and Blue Marine Foundation, the environmental initiative that is responsible for the recovery of ghost nets from the seas for the purpose of creating healthier seas and recycling marine litter into textile products, will carry out its second multi-day mission at the breathtaking volcanic islands, in Italy.

In October 2018, the same team of organizations successfully recovered over 4 tons of ghost fishing gear from Lipari and the surrounding islands. During the mission, Ghost Fishing volunteer divers recovered their largest ever net. In June, they will return to finish the deep-sea cleanup, carry out a harbor cleanup as well as an interactive and outstanding educational program with local schools.

The sea around the Aeolian Islands is home to some of Europe’s endangered marine species. Bottlenose dolphins, loggerhead sea turtles, sperm whales, and dusky groupers, have been found entangled in nets near the Aeolian Islands and in the Tyrrhenian Sea, suffering unnecessarily and in many cases eventually dying.

The long-term objective of the project is to aid the process for the creation of a well-managed marine protected area (MPA) across the Aeolian archipelago by contributing to the awareness of the local community towards the protection of the marine environment.

The collected fishing nets will be cleaned and combined with other nylon waste materials by Aquafil, before being transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon, the infinitely recyclable material. This will provide the basis for beautiful new products such as socks, sportswear, swimwear and carpets. Healthy Seas is an excellent example for the circular economy, where waste is a resource.

Funding for this World Oceans Day event in the Aeolian Islands is provided by Maratona Dles Dolomites-Enel (July 7th, 2019), one of the biggest cyclosportives in Europe now in its 33rd year. This year’s marathon is dedicated to “Tomorrow” to remind us that we need to find a better balance between the present and future by establishing a renewed relationship with nature.

Dockside Discovery
Conch House Marina, St Augustine, FL
Dockside Discovery

Dockside Discovery and Marina Cleanup - Huge success!!!

 

GTMNERR’s summer Conservation Camp and Blue Ocean Sails has partnered together, along with the support of Flagler College’s Dr Ed McGinley, to provide a Dockside Discovery experience coupled with a Marina Cleanup at Conch HouseMarina, Wed, June 5th.

 

Seven GTMNERR summer campers, ages 13-15, will be treated to a marina tour hosted by Blue Ocean Sails founders, Mike and Cindy Alyea, where they will discuss and explore marine science topics such as Black Mangrove migration, coastal engineering and hardening, living shorelines, carbon cycle, ocean acidification, climate change, sea level rise, Florida’s Clean Marina Program (CMP) and Clean Boater Program, and take an in depth tour of ‘Sea Breeze’, Blue Ocean Sails sailing vessel used in support of local marine science programs.

 

In the morning session, GTMNERR summer campers will conduct a supervised marina cleanup focusing on plastics pollution where they will collect and remove both macro and micro plastics from the waters of Salt Run, categorizing the types and size of the collected plastics and record the results in a data base.

 

Learning stations around the marina have been designated as “discussion sites” where topics of marine science and coastal issues will be discussed, explored and evaluated by the campers, GTMNERR Staff and Blue Ocean Sails.

 

The afternoon session will focus on the biodiversity inherent in marinas where a multitude of marine species live, feed, reproduce and support local populations of recreationally and commercially important species of marine life.

 

Dr Ed McGinnly, Associate Professor, Flagler College - along with 14 of his Flagler college students, will mentor the GTMNERR summer campers and lead a collection, identification and classification study exploring the biodiversity of marine species that call the Conch HouseMarina home.

 

Local area youth marine science and conservation programs are able to enjoy a diversity of coastal, inshore and offshore experiential learning opportunities as a result of partnering between organizations such as Blue Ocean Sails, GTMNERR, Flagler College and others.
