City Nature Challenge Milazzo

The City Nature Challenge is an international Citizen Science event whereby cities around the world encourage participants to share observations of nature via a mobile app. Started and coordinated by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and the California Academy of Sciences, in 2023 the competition involved 482 cities and 66,394 participants. MuMa, Museum of the Sea of Milazzo, has been participating since 2021, scoring Milazzo at the first place in Italy in consecutive years. The project will raise awareness on biodiversity and promote environmental education, creating a stronger connection between the local community and marine and terrestrial biodiversity.
The project is funded with our new partner Esplora Travel, a travel company specialising in escorted journeys in Sicily, Southern Italy and the Mediterranean, who has donated a percentage of their revenues to support this initiative.
