Guía de Isora leads the way in care for the seabed
Guía de Isora council and the NGO Innoceana have set up a collaboration agreement to raise awareness and create good environmental practices for the care of the seabed.
A group of supporters and volunteer professionals spent a number of days making dives to study the state of the isorana coast and conducting meetings with groups and institutions that develop their activity at sea. There were also be talks for schoolchildren and public meetings.
“Several councillors have been involved in the project,” explained Francisco Baute, councillor for the environment “It is an exceptional oppor-tunity for these professionals to make a diagnosis of our seabed and to be able to take measures with the different sectors related to the sea.”
It is also one of the actions that the council plans to carry out within its commitment to the Week for Climate.
Carlos Mallo, president of Innoceana, expressed his intention to create a conservation centre with the “objective of changing the sad situation of the environment and specifically of the seabed through visibility and training.”
Guía de Isora is the first municipality of the Canary Islands chosen by the NGO for this Atlantic research and conservation project.
Innoceana is a Spanish NGO that travels the world using technology and innovation to help our battered oceans and environment. It is made up of an international team with different backgrounds and experiences but all united by the environment, diving and the love of life. More information: www.innoceana.org
