Since the beginning of June, the international environmental organization SEA SHEPHERD GLOBAL has been contributing to the protection of the Alonissos Marine Park.
SEA SHEPHERD is providing the services of the German-flagged vessel Emmanuel Bronner to support the guarding and protection of the National Marine Park of Alonissos North Sporades, contributing to the joint efforts of the N.M.P.A.V.S. Management Unit, the Port Authority, the Thalassa Foundation and MOm. The Thalassa Foundation and MOm, by offering the manned vessel Neris and their valuable expertise in marine environmental protection issues, support the ongoing patrol efforts of both the Natural Environment & Climate Change Agency. They follow the European, national and regional legislation and the special regulations that have been established for the protection of the National Marine Park of Alonissos North Sporades. The intention of SEA SHEPHERD is to integrate the guarding activities, into the aforementioned patrol system and contribute to maximize the positive impact for the conservation of the marine park.
