The Guardians of the Sea project Erasmus + program aims to create a European network to promote and improve employability of young people with fewer opportunities, and protect the environment in the fisheries sector and coastal services. In addition, a guide to help volunteers working with marine species will be published. This will all be made possible with the participation of 5 institutions, including the ZSL (Zoological Society of London, UK), CIIMAR Madeira (Interdisciplinary Centre for Marine and Environmental Research of Madeira, Portugal), GreenRope (Italy) and WFMF (World Fish Migration Foundation; Netherlands). In addition, Marine Environment Committee of FEDAS, the Hippocampus and Bioblau Association will be involved in the project through collaboration and support.
The project falls in line with K2 Strategic Partnerships Erasmus + program and is funded by the Erasmus + program: Youth in Action, supported by the Spanish National Agency through the Department of Youth of the CARM.
In the framework of this Project, the WFMF will have an advisory role in both the development of the eel monitoring component of the guidance and the communication efforts for the project! The project will also be celebrated with various events in multiple regions across Europe
