Monitorign visit 2022

December 6th and 7th were two beautiful and intense days for the SeaForest LIFE project.

In fact, we received a visit from the monitor with whom we discussed the progress of the project at the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. It was also an opportunity to visit Cala Portese, on the island of Caprera, which will become the model ecological beach for the sustainable management of beached Posidonia.


A sustainable park: present and future of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park

November 10th and 11th were two days dedicated to environmental sustainability, the theme dealt with in the conference organized by the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. It was also an opportunity to learn about the research in progress and the numerous initiatives in which the Park is involved.
Ample space was also dedicated to our Seaforest LIFE project, we described the activities carried out and those in progress.


New monitoring of Posidonia in Porto Infreschi

In Cala degli Infreschi, in the National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni, new monitoring was carried out on the pilot plant of Posidonia oceanica created as part of the C5 action of the project. The purpose of the action is the reuse of plant reproductive material (seeds and sprouts) of beached Posidonia for the thickening of habitat 1120 *.
The installation and monitoring were possible thanks also to the precious support of the underwater division of the Carabinieri section of Naples. Since the last visit, it has been found that the critical phase of taking root has now passed and it seems that everything is going for the best.


Another article in a scientific journal

"3D-Reconstruction of a Giant Posidonia oceanica Beach Wrack (Banquette): Sizing Biomass, Carbon and Nutrient Stocks by Combining Field Data With High-Resolution UAV Photogrammetry" this is the title of the recently published scientific article, also thanks to the contribution of our LIFE project.
