Leaving dry land behind for a while, we dive deep into the sea, looking for left or lost ghost nets, which haunt the seabed and ensnare fish, turtles, dolphins and other species.
How did they end up there? What problems do they cause to the sea bottom? What can we do?
Through original activities, children discover the causes and effects of ghost nets; they also get an opportunity to chat with a technical diver from Ghost Fishing Greece, an organization engaged in removing lost fishing gear from the sea.
