LIFE SEPOSSO documentary “Posidonia oceanica, prendiamocene cura” takes stock of 20 years of transplants
The European project LIFE SEPOSSO realized for the first time in Italy and in the Mediterranean the monitoring of Posidonia oceanica transplants carried out in the last 20 years. Overall, 15 transplants carried out along the Italian coasts were monitored, which together represent about 30,000 sqm of transplanted meadows. A special focus is dedicated to the 4 largest transplants made along the Italian coasts: Santa Marinella (Lazio), Ischia (Campania), Piombino (Tuscany) and Augusta-Priolo Gargallo (Sicily).
The documentary “Posidonia oceanica, prendimocene cura” (the English version “Posidonia oceanica, let’s look after it” is coming soon) tells the main project’s achievements: the results obtained by 2 years of monitoring, the outcomes of the Governance analysis, the strengths and pitfalls of the procedures adopted in the past, and the solutions, best practices and innovative tools developed to make P. oceanica transplants more effective and to achieve reliable protection and restoration for this habitat.
