As Morski writes, there is nothing that the group of hard-working volunteers didn’t manage to find along the coast and on the seabed around Losinj in a large environmental action called ”The sea knows, the island remembers/More zna, otok pamti,” which was organised over this past weekend.
As many as 360 volunteers joined forces to remove more than 30 cubic metres of various pieces of rubbish and waste from the Losinj coast and seabed. Just about everything you might imagine was unfortunately found in the otherwise crystal clear Adriatic sea – from standard car tyres and other parts to discarded plastic and glass packaging, to rusty iron doors. The diligent hands of many volunteers partaking in the latest Rovinj beach cleanup cleared a large area of the Losinj coast.
54 divers and teams on land cleaned the bay of Malolosinj, more precisely the part of the coast from Velopin to Borik, Cikat bay, the promenade and the coastline continuing on from there.
The ecological action was organised by the Blue World Institute and the Subseason Diving Centre, the City of Mali Losinj and the local Tourist Board, Jadranka Tourism and several associations and clubs which pointed out the need to preserve the natural heritage of the Losinj seabed and coastal areas.
The organisers of this latest Losinj beach cleanup pointed out that the purpose of the project was to warn and raise the overall level of awareness of the general population of the problem of waste on the seabed and the beaches and to promote sustainable solutions for the preservation of the marine environment.
