THE SANCTUARY OF CETACEANS – LIGURIA
The Ligurian Sea Cetacean Sanctuary
“Our” uncontested natural oasis to admire
Also known simply as Cetacean Sanctuary, the area covers approximately 100,000 km of national and international waters where, thanks to environmental protection, the cetaceans can count on an ideal environment for their food chain.
Given the large numbers of cetaceans in the Ligurian Sea, protecting their environment it is of the utmost importance. This is accomplished by taking action on and in the protected land and marine zones that make up this stretch of sea such as regulating fishing, boating and tourism, activities that could otherwise harm or upset the lives of the marine mammals.
