Invitation to webinar on the Pen shells & the Mediterranean Cushion Coral in Greece

A scuba divers’ love for the sea and underwater life, along with the time they spend observing them, are key motivators for their involvement in Citizen Science projects!

To highlighting the role they can play in increasing knowledge and conserving marine protected species, in the context of obSERVING NATURE project, iSea, in collaboration with PADI and iNaturalist GR, has organised a webinar on: “Pen shells and the Mediterranean Cushion Coral in Greece”.

The webinar aims to encourage scuba divers to contribute to increasing knowledge and being involved in data collection, with an emphasis on the protected species of Pen shells, Pinna nobilis and Pinna rudis, and the Mediterranean Cushion Coral, Cladocora caespitosa, and the promotion of Citizen Science so they can contribute to the conservation of marine protected species.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, June 6th, from 18:00 to 19.30, online.
