All proceeds go towards supporting the charity and the expenses that go into making our educational outreach program possible ๐Ÿ™ Ana, who successfully completed her Silver #DofE service with us, is continuing her Gold journey ๐Ÿ‘ We are very grateful to Ana for donating her incredible talent to aid the charity and we're ecstatic to be able to support her artistry ๐ŸŽจ #Gibraltar the future looks bright ๐ŸŒž โœจ๏ธ #artist #OurYouthOurFuture #inspire #AnaSerraCollection #supportingourcommunity #SupportingOurYouthThe Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Gibraltar Cotton Leisure Ltd ...

Upon leaving the oil spill cleaning operation that took place on Sunday at Sandy Bay, one of our volunteers, spotted an area past Black Strap Cove that needed attention ๐Ÿ‘€ A recce ensued in order to risk assess the area followed by a keen group of Nautilus, DofE participants & leaders, MedOceanHeroes and members of Save Catalan Bay joining forces. Whilst a couple swam from Caleta to the area, the rest carefully accessed via the cliff, handing the equipment down. Materials donated worked a treat as the boom contained the oil in the area, allowing the volunteers to begin manually cleaning the rocks - nothing short of about 60! ๐ŸชจAnother successful 3 hour operation - mucky, ardous but essential ๐Ÿ™ Well done team! ๐Ÿ‘ #togetherstronger #oilspill #teamwork #Gibraltar #civicpride #NationalDayIncoming ...

The Ribbed Mediterranean Limpet (Patella ferruginea) is the most endangered endemic marine invertebrate on the Western Mediterranean coasts according to the European Council Directive 92/43/EEC.It is also listed as protected under our own Nature Protection Act 1991-11.Yesterday we conducted our first snorkel survey since the oil spill on the inside of the southern revetment at Sandy Bay. We were sad to encounter some recently deceased invertebrates along the rocks. At this stage the organisms worst hit appear to be the limpets, albeit currently in small numbers.These molluscs are presently moving off their home scars because of the oil. As they weaken they fall off the rock and are quickly devoured by fish in the water below.The instance of the deceased Ribbed Mediterranean Limpet demonstrates that a protected species has been impacted. The populations are showing clear signs of stress and we expect more detachments.#gibraltar #nemo #bgtw #environmentalimpact #limpet #endangered #gibraltar ... See MoreSee Less

Marine Biology Summer Camp Day 3 Despite the jellyfish influx at #HistoricRosiaBay (see NEMO APP - Support Forum) our snorkel team was in the water early this morning to prepare for the catch, learn and release interaction.The children learnt all about sea urchins, common octopus, dog whelks, tower shells, spider crabs, cotton spinner sea cucumbers, spiny sea stars, brittle stars, mauve stingers and more! Enthralled with facts galore, they also thoroughly enjoyed watching the release strategy and how each invertebrate was returned safely back to its habitat within the #HistoricRosiaBay basin.The octopus ๐Ÿ™ being a favourite watching its jet propulsion in the water as was the spider crab ๐Ÿฆ€ camouflaging on the sea bed.These sessions serve to ignite a passion for our marine wildlife, thus ensuring their preservation. Well done teams: Super Sharks ๐Ÿฆˆ Fish and Fins ๐ŸŸ King Crabs ๐Ÿฆ€ and Maja Squinados ๐Ÿฆ€ More tomorrow! #summercamp22 #marinebiology #marinescience #Gibraltar #catchlearnrelease #empoweringyoungminds #ignitingtheresearchmindset #leadership ...
