With Fimar 2016 our summer season to sail around the Canary Islands while taking samples for microplastics and help develop a methodology for sailors to report the sightings of cetaceans. Here is where you can find us the coming weeks:
From May 25 to May 27 we will be present at Micro 2016, the international conference in Arrecife, Lanzarote. Together with many scientists we will talk about and listen to the latest information and developments around the global issue of microplastics.
One week later, on June 3rd, we will give a presentation at Puerto Calero, also on Lanzarote, to be followed by the annual Jornada de la Náutica y el Medio Ambiente, organized by the very same marina. The ‘Orion’ will be open for visitors and we will present our current project.
Then we will sail back to Las Palmas, so we will be in time for the Miniferia de los Oceanos in the village of San Cristobal, on June 8th. There will be many activities for families to celebrate World Oceans’ Day.
You are more than welcome to visit us on one of the events!
