New educational tools are now available on the Pelagos Agreement tripartite website (pelagossanctuary.org) with the aim of raising awareness among young people of the importance of protecting the biodiversity and marine mammals.
The completion of this project was made possible thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Monaco. In the 1990s, the Rotary Club of Monaco was one of the promoters of the Pelagos Project which gave birth to the Pelagos Agreement a few years later under the leadership of Prince Rainier III. Continuously involved in the protection of the marine environment, the Rotary Club of Monaco has implemented its support for the Pelagos Agreement through the creation of a poster and an escape game.
These two complementary tools were designed with the aim of offering an educational experience enabling the youngest to know the marine mammals that inhabit the Sanctuary as well as their characteristics, their evolution and the threats they face, and all in a fun way. The escape game offers an experience rich in emotions that encourages young people to become ambassadors of the protection of marine mammals in the Pelagos Sanctuary.
The poster, for its part, can be downloaded from the Agreement website and will be distributed in Monegasque, French and Italian schools in the Area of the Sanctuary who request it. Thanks to these new tools, the young public becomes an actor in the protection of marine mammals, reinforcing the idea of having a Sanctuary for all.
