“Conservas Emperatriz “have such a commitment with the sustainability, this is why we want to give visibility to some initiatives as “Observes of the Sea”.
It is a citizen project promoted by the Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC), where scientific investigations are combined with citizen observation and experiences related to the sea. This multifunctional platform based on the dialogue between citizen and scientifics, at the same time, let people have a more tangible answers.
The observers group is composed by people with a continuous contact with the sea. Any kind of event related to the sea is analyze, from the distribution and the number of sea species, to the ecosystem effects presence. All this information give the scientifics a widely compression about the the pollution effects, the climate change…etc
