Artisanal fishers in corals restoration

The project run by researchers from Anton Dohrn Zoological Station, in collaboration with Siculpesca cooperative and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, aims to involve artisanal fishers to restore coralligenous habitats in the Marine Protected Area(MPA) of Capo Gallo and Isola delle Femmine in Palermo. Local fishers will be trained in the assessment of damages and restoration procedures with a focus on sustainable fishing.
We will partner with Studio Forward to develop an awareness campaign to inform on the importance of the MPA and of coral-reefs populations, playing a pivotal role in marine ecosystems. We are happy to welcome  Grimaldi Palermo Euro terminal, as partner and co-funder of the project. Officine Grafiche will continue to support us through their printing services.
