Citizens discovering Ellisolandia elongata ‘mimic’ project

On Saturday 10th June, SPEZIA OUTDOOR dedicated a day to explore sea jobs around Santa Teresa Bay (La Spezia, I). Twenty-two citizens, among young and adults, were guided to discover professionals working with and within the sea such as mussel farmers, researchers and sailors.

MedClimaLizers Lab presented the on going project on Ellisolandia elongata ‘mimics’ to citizens, currently running in Santa Teresa Bay.


Citizens explored the ‘reef’ by snorkeling under the guidance of researchers and, in the afternoon, young promising ‘scientists’ spend hours at the microscope to look at the fauna inhabiting E. elongata natural reef.
