Our Greek divers headed in July to a group of islets known as the Lichadonisia. The area is a hotspot for biodiversity and proposed to be part of the NATURA 2000 network in the future, since the highly endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) is also living in this area.
Check out this nice rapportage about our recent diving trip in Greece, Star TV of Central Greece was there to cover the story.
The mission was successful, the team managed to pull out a large amount of ghost nets covering one side of the wreck. More than 200 kilos of recovered nets will now be taken to be processed as part of a circular economy business model. The recovered fishing nets will be transformed and regenerated into ECONYL® yarn, a high-quality raw material which is used to create beautiful new products, such as socks, swimwear, sportswear or carpets.
