Mare Nostrum Project

On Tuesday 30th July, two French University students, Douglas Couet and Louis Wilmotte, made a presentation to the Rotary Club of Gibraltar on their scientific project called Mare Nostrum.
The two young men will be leaving from Gibraltar in a specially designed Kayak and will travel to Istanbul carrying out scientific experiments on sea life along the North Coast of the Mediterranean. It will take Douglas and Louis at least a year to complete their 10,000km route.
The primary objective of the project is to participate in scientific missions along the way collecting water samples for further research on invasive species in the Mediterranean Sea.
