In close partnership with IMPAC3, Marseille hosts in September and October 2013 exhibitions and seminars on the conservation of small islands in the Mediterranean and all around the globe.
While essential to maintaining biodiversity, small islands stand under increasing pressure from human activities: pollution, urbanization, overusage, invasive alien species.
On June 24 in Marseille, the Agence des aires marines protégées (French MPA Agency) showcased the results of the MEDSEACAN and CORSEACAN campaigns, dedicated to the exploration of underwater canyon heads in the northwestern Mediterranean.
From November 2008 to August 2010, both campaigns mapped underwater valleys that cut deeply into the edge of the Mediterranean continental shelf.
