A la une
Within the scope of Ocean Initiatives, a partnership with the BELEM foundation (in collaboration with IFREMER and the CEDRE) has been implemented to lead a floating litter observation campaign. The association of these two organisations has the objective of collecting information on the topic of floating litter in the sea and drawing large-scale public attention to this type of pollution which massively effects all bodies of water. In addition, Surfrider provides training to trainee and apprentice sailors in the course of navigation, and organises educational packages (exhibitions, stands, activities, etc.) during the various ports of call (Spain, Portugal, France). Navigations started in Marseilles on June 29, then in Bayonne, Pauillac, Bordeaux, Nantes, and Saint-Brieuc, ending in Nantes on September 27 and 28.
