Document Actions
The "SEPOSSO" LIFE project (Supporting Environmental governance for the Posidonia oceanica Sustainable transplanting Operations), of which Ispra is leader, faces the complex issue of Posidonia oceanica transplantation in order to compensate the damage caused by construction of coastal works or infrastructures. "SEPOSSO" also aims to raise citizens awareness about the importance of Posidonia oceanica meadows, a priority marine habitat. It starts from the case study of Civitavecchia-Santa Marinella, where the first and largest transplant of Posidonia of the Mediterranean was carried out.

From June 28 to 30, the municipalities host a series of initiatives to raise awareness of the current situation of the prairies and to provide moments of comparison between institutions, citizens and businesses. In 2004, 300 thousand Posidonia cuttings were installed on a surface of about 10,000 square meters of sea between the towns of Santa Marinella and Santa Severa.
