Plastics do not belong in the ocean!

On the 8th of June, we celebrated World Oceans Day at Caddebostan Divers Club in Istanbul with the participation of marine lovers from around Turkey. Main action focus of the day defined by the UN was to “prevent plastic pollution at sea and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean.” A short film prepared by TUDAV was screened at the event, along with the exclusive video message of Peter Thomas, UN Special Envoy for the Ocean, which was sent to TUDAV specifically for the day. Additionally, the trailer of ACCOBAM’s new international project, ASI-ACCOBAMS Survey Initiative, was also screened at the event in order to inform the participants about the contribution of TUDAV to the project as one of the research teams. The project aims to estimate the abundance and describe the distribution of all cetacean species found in the Mediterranean. #WorldOceansDay #SaveOurOcean #SayNoPlastics
