On the World Oceans Day (8th of June) Las Palmas de Gran Canaria City Council organized a complete program for 300 students from preschool, primary school and high school. Several organizations collaborated to create different activities for students, such as theatre, gymkhana, face painting and art works.
For this occasion, two European projects, INDICIT and MISTIC SEAS II, collaborated together in the #INDICITchallenge, and kids from preschool used bottle caps to create 3 artworks and learn how marine debris affect ocean life.
Finally, a loggerhead turtle recovering at the Gran Canaria Recovery Centre was released in Las Canteras beach (Las Palmas city, Canary Islands) by Ana Liria Loza (ULPGC). The turtle was found 5 weeks before entangled in marine debris in southern Gran Canaria. The release was livestreamed on INDICIT Facebook page.
