SEAS WITHOUR PLASTICS
Plastic: a material that has radically revolutionized our daily life, today represents a serious environmental problem.
The "Our Ocean" campaign, born in Malta in 2017, involves all the Aquariums of the World in a single appeal against the dispersion of waste at sea and in particular plastic objects: whether they are Macro, Micro or Nano Plastics does not matter, as long as they stay out of the Sea and the Environment, being disposed of according to the law.
Let's find out what happens to Plastic in the Sea through the tropical tanks of Aquarius: every year, millions of creatures die with their stomachs full of these materials, an example of this are the turtles saved at our recovery center!
Knowing the problem, together we can solve it by becoming the future champions of the sea.
The activity lasts 1h. The participation has a cost of Euro 3 per student (in addition to the entrance ticket), For teachet the activity is free. Fares are for minimum 15 paying people.
WITH THE MEMORY, LIKE A TURTLE.
The Mediterranean Sea is an extraordinary habitat rich in life and of presiding environments: for this reason it is a heritage to safeguard through important national and international actions and initiatives such as the establishment of the Cetacean Sanctuary Pelagos, the creation of the Marine protected areas and The Tuscan Oobservatory for the Biodiversity, with which Acquario di Livorno collaborates with its Recovery and Reabilitation centre for Marine Turtles.
Just like the terrestrial ones, the sea turtles also have a formidable memory, kept not only in their brains, but also in every single cell of their body.
In fact, the study of their skin allow us, thanks to their longevity, to have a good idea of the evolution of the environment in which they live: for this reason, the Caretta caretta in particular have been elected by the scientific community "a symbol species" of the Mediterranean Sea.
Let's try not to miss the opportunity to know thes extraordinary animals, studying the biology of the 3 species present in the Mediterranean Sea, discovering their habits, characteristics and common points with our species.
We will learn how to recognize them, report their present to the authorities and possibly help them in case of difficulty. We therefore become the "true friends of the sea turtles"
The activity lasts 1h. The pasticipation has a cost of Euro 3 per student (in addition to the entrance ticket). For theacher is free. Fares are for minimum 15 paying people.
