- Thanks to Posidonia, our beaches have fine white sand and our sea is gin-clear and turquoise.
- It’s a native and protected plant that sustains the habitat of marine fauna and flora by filtering the water.
- Posidonia meadows are an extremely precious asset, which is why there are areas where anchoring is prohibited by law.
- It’s the oldest living being on earth, with an approximate age of 100,000 years.
- It’s composed of roots, stems, leaves, fruits and flowers that usually bloom in autumn, providing the so-called ‘sea olives’.
- It’s one of the most important sources of oxygen in the Mediterranean, generating between 4 and 20 litres per day per square metre of plant.
- These meadows are a home and refuge to more than four 400 plant species and 1,000 animal species.
- Destroying Posidonia would harm the environment, strip the seabed bare, and jeopardise local economies that live off fishing.
Help with the care of Posidonia. Its survival is essential for preserving our little piece of paradise.
