After some years thinking about how to help to protect the oceans and our beautiful Natural Park of Ria Formosa, AECO was finally born.
Since new generations are the future of our planet, there is no better place than schools to raise awareness about plastic and micro plastic pollution.
Our first volunteers came from Belgium this year and it was the beginning of a series of crazy, fun, hardworking and most memorable adventures!
With the grant that we won from the European Outdoor Conservation Association it was possible to hire divers from the CCMAR-Algarve University to do underwater cleanups and research about the seahorse community living in the natural park.
Aiming to bring the local communities closer to the ocean and provide relevant skills to younger generations, we started an educational project based on experiential learning.
What I liked the most was the science and life museum, I found it really interesting and on top of that, we could touch fish, and love fish so it was very cool! I would recommend this experience with all my heart because I really like it, the location is quite idyllic, and everything is really nice.
I preferred the fishing activity, because I learned a new technique that I never done before. It was interesting to see how you could fish without even going into the water and without a net. Then we spent a pleasant evening with the people of the association and they explained some anecdotes about the island, the locals and it was a very ice time.
I'll recommend this project 1000%. It's really great! We really realize things and we say to ourselves that we are part of the evolution of the earth, by doing a little bit. A very Instructive experience!
