Ecologists in Action of the Murcia Region is a non-profit organization that has been developing different environmental conservation campaigns and dissemination of environmental values for two decades, in what is called social ecology. These are mainly based on environmental training and volunteer actions that are convened regularly.
For the present project, the organization will be serving as a link between fishermen, schools, society and scientific entities that study the strategies for the protection of the highly threatened populations of Pinna nobilis on the coast of the Murcia region. Here you can find them doing some dissemination campaigns in primary and secondary schools in Murcia.
