Five weeks ago we began this at-sea campaign. Days pass by, immersed deep in the environments of the continental shelf and the dark slopes surrounding the islands of Malta. For several months, the graphic information obtained will be carefully analyzed to produce a detailed report. This is how Oceana contributes – providing important data that will later help to protect at least 10% of Malta´s coastal and marine areas by 2020.
Throughout today´s journey, a group of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis), came to greet us; they are, along with the bottlenose dolphins, our guardians in this punishing sea. Every evening, our eyes stare at the horizon, looking for healthy and oceans full of life, a dream and a challenge to work and fight for.
