On 8 June 2017, on World Oceans Day, ACCOBAMS celebrated Cetaceans Day, as part of Monacology. The Monacology EcoVillage was founded in 2004 with the support of the Department of Education, Youth and Sport and takes place every year on the Quai Antoine 1er. This year, the main theme of this Monegasque environmental awareness week is the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In this context, from 6 to 9 June, ACCOBAMS is holding an interactive educational workshop linked to SDG 14, which focuses on the conservation and sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources. In this way, ACCOBAMS is highlighting the protection of cetaceans in the Mediterranean by raising visitors' awareness:
Beware – Cetaceans in Danger!
Why are they at risk?
Identifying the marks found on cetaceans
Why do they strand themselves?
Which species are affected?
Is it possible to save them? Who is responsible for protecting them?
