Welcome to the Nautilus Project

Based in Gibraltar, our aim is to raise marine environmental issues with the local public to help craft the changes required for a better future!.

The Nautilus Project has been delivering environmental initiatives since we opened officially in 2016. Our goal is to provide a superior learning experience of the Gibraltar marine environment for our community. We aim to improve awareness of environmental issues through learning at schools or in small private groups.

Lewis Stagnetto has decades of experience in Marine Biology and is passionate about exceeding your expectations. Our catch, learn and release (CLR) strategy will ensure you will leave with great memories and unique experiences.

What a fantastic programme. There’s nothing that compare to a hands on experience especially for children. They learnt so much from Lewis in a fun and engaging way. Each child was made to feel special and they made so many memories from an exhilarating boat ride, finding lots of different sea creatures and learning how to handle them correctly, right through to understanding respect for the ocean and its inhabitants, as well as their own safety at sea. Every detail was considered and it was definitely an adventure that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others! Thank you very much team Nautilus Project!
