MURTER – September 11 and 12, 2021 – The campaign “Together for a cleaner Adriatic” this weekend continued on the island of Murter where the Association for Nature and Environmental Protection and Promotion of Sustainable Development Argonaut organized two cleanup campaigns, diving for divers in the Kornati and “Sea Festival” as a rich educational and entertainment program dedicated to the sea for children and adults.

This summer, through the “Together for a cleaner Adriatic” drip, divers organized five submarine cleaning campaigns, from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, in which more than a hundred participants took part – divers, volunteers at sea and on land, members of associations, utilities and individuals cleaned the Adriatic for 20 cubic meters of waste!

This weekend, the campaign continued on the island of Murter, where the Argonauts Association hosted about 40 divers from RK Dubrovnik, UPA Rostrum Split, Powerlifting Club “Šibenik”, Diving Club “Dive must Sibenik”, Sv. Roko from Bibinje and in co-organization with RK “Murter-Kornati”, the association “Betinska gajeta 1740” and DVD Tisno, held actions to clean the seabed in Betina and Tisno. The cleaning actions removed two trucks of waste from the sea, and in Tisno, the participants in the actions also witnessed the “Periski cemetery”. Watch the video actions and the “Periski cemetery” here.

In order to educate the general public about the problems of marine pollution and the importance of preserving the marine environment, a “Festival of the Sea” was organized. a superhero who protects the sea and life in it. In co-organization with RK Sv. Roko, for adults, was organized “Traveling exhibition: Life of the Adriatic depths” and a lecture “Man and the sea – Fishing in antiquity” held by the curator of the Zadar Archaeological Museum, Dušanka Romanović.

On Saturday, a dive was held in the diving zone Mala Panitula where divers enjoyed discovering the beauties of the Kornati seabed, and in the evening, in addition to lectures and exhibitions, they competed in a pub quiz about the Adriatic Sea and had fun with live music!

A weekend dedicated to the sea, resulted in:

  • two trucks waste less in the Adriatic Sea
  • educating children and adults about the importance of our sea and its inhabitants
  • connecting divers along the Adriatic coast and strengthening the cooperation of various stakeholders in local communities
  • agreements for the next, joint actions to clean the Adriatic seabed

For the second year in a row, the organization of underwater cleaning actions “Together for a cleaner Adriatic” was made possible by the company Procter and Gamble Croatia, ie its customers who contributed to the donation by purchasing labeled products, and we thank them.

We also thank all the diving clubs and divers who participated in the campaign “Together for a cleaner Adriatic” this summer, all volunteers on land and sea, all utilities, and all stakeholders without whom the success of the campaign would not be possible! We hope that the drip will become traditional and that the third edition will be welcomed next year.
