The Provincial Council of Málaga together with the Aula del Mar Mediterráneo Foundation (FAMM) want to convey to the citizens of the province’s municipalities the need to conserve and restore marine and coastal ecosystems in the face of climate change. A leading part of this objective is the traveling exhibition “Restauramar”, which will arrive in Marbella on October 30 thanks to both the Marbella City Council and Cívitas Puerto Banús.
The exhibition, which will be located at the Club de Mar in Cívitas Puerto Banús, will be inaugurated by Benjamín Sánchez Morett, director of the Sustainability Committee of Cívitas Puerto Banús and Juan Antonio López, president of the FAMM.
“This interesting exhibition adds to the different activities that Cívitas Puerto Banús develops with the aim of preserving our environment and promoting good practices among our employees, clients and visitors for the preservation of biodiversity and our ecosystems. It is extremely important to spread knowledge and raise awareness in our society, so that the commitment to the planet becomes stronger and more real, and this exhibition helps to achieve this,” says Benjamín Sánchez Morett. “From the foundation, we appreciate the generosity and collaboration of the Marbella City Council and Cívitas Puerto Banús, which has made this first exhibition possible and, of course, the Málaga Provincial Council for this project,” adds Juan Antonio López.
It will consist of a Program of Daily Participatory Activities (from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) guided by environmental educators and may receive free visits from previously arranged groups and interested people.
The exhibition is divided into three thematic areas:
- Biodiversity in the coastline and marine environment of the province of Málaga: contains a reference to the main marine and coastal ecosystems, with a description of their seabed as well as the different species that can be observed on the Málaga coast: sharks, cetaceans, turtles and jellyfish.
- Challenges that the seas and oceans face: plastics, how long they take to degrade, the problem of microplastics and how they have entered the food chain. We will report on the effects of climate change on the marine environment, such as the rise in water temperature and its consequences; about the increase in the number of invasive species in the Mediterranean and why there are more and more jellyfish plagues on our coasts.
- Good practices that care for the sea: with images and brief descriptions of ecosystem services, the Sustainable Blue Economy, Research and conservation projects, coastal and marine environment restoration actions, environmental volunteering and new currents for a “Change of Trend ”.
