The Pelagos Sanctuary

The Pelagos Sanctuary and the Marine Protected Areas

 
 
The visit continues towards the cows that represent the Pelagos Sanctuary and the Marine Protected Areas, from where a virtual immersion begins that leads to know the main ecosystems of our coasts.

This section of the route has a large pool that allows the public to admire and discover the depths of the coast that winds through the promontory of Piombino in Leghorn and the animals that populate it such as peacocks, damselfishes, servals...


...and again, sea breams and starfish.




The Pelagos Sanctuary was founded in 1999 by bringing together 124 French municipalities, the Principality of Monaco and 111 Italian municipalities, including Livorno. This area of the aquarium of Livorno with its richly populated basins wants to represent the sanctuary and its high rate of biodiversity that, along our coast, allowed the establishment of special marine protected areas, such as those of the Secche of Meloria.
