The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development gains momentum. From 9–11 March 2022, the next Ocean Decade Laboratories, an interactive and creative platform to raise awareness, showcase actions, and attract partners and stakeholders, will promote the outcome “A Healthy and Resilient Ocean”. Within this outcome, focused on the importance to measure and reduce stressors to map and protect marine ecosystems, the Mar Menor Initiative / RemediOS project is organising a workshop as a satellite activity, and we are very happy to be part of it.
On March, the 10th, from 2pm-4pm CET, we talk about Restoring Oysters for a Healthy Ocean.

The event will be a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of native oysters and oyster reefs for the ocean, providing a variety of ecosystem services like the improvement of water quality and the enhancement of biodiversity. Oysters and their reefs are key players for a healthy marine environment – and here is one of our possibilities to let people know about.
