Terre Marine is an Association
It has been in existence since 2011
The environmental, scientific and especially educational interest is at the heart of the team’s values. We assume that to protect, you have to discover and understand. This is why our approach is combined with the acquisition of knowledge and respect for wildlife at sea.
Faced with climate changes and the necessity to reduce C02 emissions, the practice of sailing in a recreational environment seems obvious. This is why we teach it as a simple action which is accessible to everyone, integrating perfectly into an eco-navigation approach.
The urgency of the awareness of the preservation of the Mediterranean fauna, the preservation of the Mediterranean Sea and ultimately the preservation of the human species led us to develop an education programme for all and especially for the youngest ones directly concerned by the upcoming changes.
An active and innovative Education on the boat “Sea Explorer” to sensitise “without feeling guilty” the general public by building a knowledge of marine sciences.
Indeed what could be better than sailing on the sea and understand it when meeting a dolphin, a moon fish or the flight of a gannet.
