We currently work in the following regions:

The Adriatic Sea with its delicate reefs and plentiful wrecks provides habitat to many marine species and poses a particular challenge to our clean-up activities.

In cooperation with our partner DeFishGear, our diving team cleaned up derelict fishing gear from reefs and selected wrecks in Croatia and Italy. Furthermore, we established a waste fishing net reception facility in the port of Ancona. Here the fisherman communities from the ports of Ancona, Cattolica and Molfetta in Italy store their waste fishing nets.
