Why we love it?

The NaturDive project is already supported by the renowned Office Français de la Biodiversité (French Biodiversity Office) and had the opportunity to prove its worth during a trial phase in 2022! It now needs to be perpetuated to continue the fight against marine pollution near the coast.

Challenge

BiodiversityDecontamination
Lost fishing nets impact biodiversity: they physically destroy habitat and chemically contaminate the trophic chain of marine ecosystems. These nets, most often lost accidentally, must be removed from the seabed as quickly as possible to minimize their impact on biodiversity.

Solution

In partnership with artisanal fishermen in the Cannes and Antibes area, the project covers several actions:
- prospecting and spotting nets by diving;
- assessing the impact of each net on its environment and its removal;
- removal of nets by professional divers;
- evacuation and research into possible reprocessing solutions.


The money will be used for

The funds raised will cover the costs associated with the diving activity (professional divers) and logistics (boat and petrol). NaturDive will also be able to increase the project's visibility among various sea users to improve the reporting of lost nets.
