Tethys contributes to new IUCN publications

On the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) website is now possible to download three important and interesting volumes about Marine Protected Areas and the effects of marine traffic in the Mediterranean Sea.

Two remarkable contributions come from Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara and Simone Panigada, respectively Tethys’s honorary president and vice-president.

Notarbartolo wrote the foreword of the volume called “Status of Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean Sea”. Panigada, with other researchers, wrote "Biodiversity impacts of ship movement, noise, grounding and anchoring", the first chapter of “Maritime traffic effects on biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea - Volume 1”.
