Do you remember our Poseidon? After the Malta National Aquarium, now it moved to a new location to the Esplora Interactive Science Centre in Malta where will be on display until May 2018.

The sculpture was created during the Our Ocean conference in Malta last year in order to raise awareness about the plastic pollution of the seas and oceans. The ghost nets and other marine litter used for this sculpture have been collected by divers and volunteers from the coastline and seas around Malta.

Healthy Seas and its partners were organizing various side events in Malta, linked to this important global event.
