An unusual activity

The seabed hides wonderful secrets. But it can also hide untold stories! Our operations in Mytilini together with the Attica Group revealed the harsh imprint of the refugee crisis and the remnants of lives thrown into the sea. And in this very action, refugees from Sudan supported us (in addition to the 70 volunteers who participated), creating an intense contrast as they set an example to a local community that has not been particularly active.

Many thanks to the local authorities and the Department of Marine Sciences of the University of Aegean for the cooperation

Refugees' help was touching!!
