Project Kick-off in Venice

Regional Cooperation for the conservation of cetaceans and sea turtle in the Adriatic started in Venice in December 2012 with the official kick-off of the NETCET project.

The event was opened by Paola Ravenna, City of Venice Manager of European Policie, followed by two intense days of  interesting presentations and exchange thanks to the active participation of the highly complementary and competent  partnership. Administrative and financial issues were tackled with the support of the IPA Adriatic Programme JTS, followed by discussion aimed at defining the next steps of the project. This focused in particular on the setting up of a NETCET database for sea turtles and cetacean data and on how this will build upon and link up with other existing databases, as well on the procedures for monitoring cetacean and sea turtle stranding along the coast.

The meeting has served to strengthen the partnership, which had already proven to be an excellent team in the proposal stage, and  to get our first training activities and local rescue centre preparatory activities off the ground.
The next project meeting will be hosted by Blue World in Losinj, Croatia in March.
