Reef Alert Network and Portofino MPA

Over three days of diving in the Marine Protected Area of Portofino, in Liguria, Worldrise Onlus, thanks to the support of AXA Cuori in Azione and the collaboration of Reef Alert Network and Portofino MPA, was able to complete an operation to retrieve fishing lines lost at sea. In the depths of the MPA, fishing gear had trapped a forest of gorgonians; as a result of this operation, the octocorals will be able to thrive once more. Thanks to a circular economy project, new life will also be given to the recovered fishing lines.
