|Email item||Print item||
A large number of tyres and glass bottles were recovered from the seabed in the Blue Lagoon at Comino, by a group of nine volunteers of the Emergency Response and Rescue Corps (ERRC). The team had spent the last few days working there as part of their contribution in the Green Wave project.
This is one of two projects being carried out by the ERRC, which include various ideas relating to the promotion and protection of the marine environment.
The ERRC said that these projects have been made possible by the benefit of a total grant of €50,000 under the scheme launched by the Ministry for Gozo for Non Governmental organisations related to the eco-Gozo action plan 2010-2012, including those that promote enhancement and protection of the marine environment.
