The City Council launches a new edition of the program A forest under the sea: Posidonia oceanica (31/01/2019)

The City Council of Águilas has launched a new edition of the project A forest under the sea;

an initiative that aims to raise awareness among Primary and Secondary students about the importance of caring for and maintaining the oceanic posidonia.

The project, developed by the Department of Local Development and Training, "takes special relevance in a municipality like Águilas because this marine plant has a wide distribution in our coasts despite being highly threatened," said the first mayor, Mari Carmen Moreno , in the visit to one of the schools that are participating in this project.

The oceanic posidonia forms underwater meadows that are protected by the Habitat directive, besides playing a fundamental role in the conservation of the coasts and in the maintenance of the fishing resources.

"The objective, therefore, is for schoolchildren to know that what we popularly know as algae is not trash, but rather the opposite, as they indicate the good quality of our waters," said Moreno.

It should be noted that the project is being developed by the participants in the Public Employment Program "Strengthening the economic development and training service of the City of Águilas, Phase II", subsidized by the SEF and co-financed by the European Social Fund through the Program Operative Youth Employment, plus an important municipal contribution.
