Mare Nostrum


Last October, after travelling more than 8,500 kilometres along the coasts of the Mediterranean in a double kayak, in a journey lasting 435 days, two students, Douglas and Louis, arrived in Istanbul. Mission accomplished. In addition to being a personal and sporting adventure, their initiative, which was supported by two Monegasque environmental agreement organisations – ACCOBAMS (marine bio––diversity conservation) and L’Accord RAMOGE (marine pollution control), generated many valuable observations.
