POSIMED ANDALUCIA AT THE ENVIRONMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL VOLUNTEERING OF ANDALUCÍA
The volunteering activities included in the POSIMED Andalucía program have been exhibited at the Environmental Volunteering Meeting of Andalusia held in Seville on November 28, 2015. This year marks 20 years of environmental volunteering in Andalusia.
The program POSIMED Andalucía is integrated into the LIFE BLUE NATURA project during the years 2015 and 2016 as part of the preparatory actions for the characterization of the Posidonia oceanica meadows in Andalusia.
The Monitoring Network of the state of conservation of Posidonia oceanica in Andalusia (Red Posimed-Andalucía) tracks 35 stations spread across the provinces of Málaga, Granada and Almería. POSIMED-Andalusia is a Program of the Ministry of Environment and Territory Planning of the Junta de Andalucía (CMAOT) which has been active since 2009, uniting the technical monitoring of the Posidonia oceanica meadows carried out by the Marine Environment Management Program of the CMAOT with the participation of volunteer divers who provide data on the state of conservation of these seagrass meadows.
