About this project

Marine Partnership
Efficient protection at sea  is based on exact and current data on the sea environment and biodiversity, which are traditionally gathered and analysed by scientists in research and monitoring programmes. In the past years there has been a growing interest to include the public in data collection, so anyone spending time in nature or on the sea can record their observations and assist in creating a fuller picture of the situation of the sea environment and biodiversity.

This application facilitates recording observations of protected and/or endangered species with the aim of creating a data base of their appearance and spatial distribution in the Adriatic. This refers to species on the list of NATURA 2000 and other endangered species that may be spotted in the Adriatic and that anyone can identify fairly easily.

To take part in this monitoring programme you have to install the Marine Partnership application. When an interesting species is spotted, details can be sent immediately.

How can you contribute?

 

Simply download the APP to your smart-phone and off you go! You can record sightings of cetaceans, seals, marine turtles, large fish (tuna, basking shark, sunfish, etc.) and several birds. All you need to send is the species, the date and a GPS position. If you have taken any, you can also attach your pictures for species confirmation.

 

If you do not have the APP, you can also upload the information directly into the web-page
