THE Costa de Almeria Aquarium in Roquetas de Mar is to lead a project in Andalucia to collect lead from marine beds.
The initiative was formalised with the signing of an agreement between the aquarium director Enrique Fernandez and the coordinator of Asociacion Hippocampus Plumbum project Jose Luis Alcaide in an act also attended by Hippocampus secretary Juan Diego Lopez.
Asociacion Hippocampus is a body which is dedicated to studying and preserving the Mar Menor in Murcia, and particularly to seahorses. It was first set up in 2007 as a result of the Hippocampus Project, which was included in the Murcia Region Environmental Voluntary Work Action Programme.
All the profits gained from recycling the collect lead will go towards the association’s conservation projects.
The Costa de Almeria Aquarium will be the project standard bearer in Andalucia, starting in Almeria province, and with the aim of extending it to the whole region.
