come and meet the PEOPLES of the SEA


Marie Ange Guesney 06 29 32 64 29. lespeuplesdelamer@gmail.com


The Leucatois NGO Les PEUPLES de la MER has been carrying out numerous actions for the past 2 years for the knowledge and protection of the Leucatois marine area:

- POINT ZERO missions : previous state of biodiversity in participatory sciences

- prevention and collection of waste that goes into the sea: “ EVERYTHING GOES INTO THE SEA”

- educational activities with the Children of Leucate, Port Leucate, La Franqui

During these 2 years we carried out 69 missions at sea, 27,175 observations, traveled 5,317 km and mobilized 150 volunteers.

These Meetings with the PEOPLES of the SEA offer the public both our assessments, the presentation of our actions and projects, and to exchange and debate on the theme:

BY PROTECTING SPACES WE PROTECT SPECIES

BY PROTECTING SPACES WE PROTECT SPECIES

The Leucate land and sea territory constitutes a very rich natural space. An undeniable asset which is also a responsibility. Thus the Narbonnaise Regional Natural Park, the Gulf of Lion Regional Natural Park and the Natura 2000 zones provide a framework of protection and development for the different biotopes while skills and economic means make it possible to study them in their diversity. Despite everything, we see that the impacts of human activities are increasing every year. Some are known, others are more unknown, particularly to the public, because they are sometimes invisible.

Today, better knowledge of these impacts and the effects of climate change makes it possible to envisage better control. This round table therefore aims to bring together elected officials, industrialists, scientists, environmental specialists and environmental associations in order to open the discussion, without prejudice.

Laurence Fonbonne , Director of the Rivages mixed union

The RIVAGE union ensures the concerted management of the Salses-Leucate pond and its watershed. In this capacity, he participates in the implementation of various public policies for the management of natural environments, habitats and species. After a presentation of the lagoon, its hydrological functioning, its emblematic fauna and flora, an update will be made on the tools available to us and their scope.

Educational Areas, educate to protect.

Marine Educational Areas are small coastal and marine areas managed in a participatory manner by the students of a class, their teacher and a referent structure in agreement with the municipality and managers. The LABELBLEU association has been a reference structure for Marine Educational Areas since 2020. Last November, two AMEs were created in Leucate and Port Leucate.

Marie Deweirder , education mission manager for the territory of the Narbonnaise Natural Park in the Mediterranean

The Regional Natural Park is an inhabited territory, recognized at national level for its strong heritage and landscape value which is organized around a concerted sustainable development project, based on the protection and enhancement of its heritage. The Park lists environmental education as one of its priority missions. Its objective is to raise awareness among young people and residents of their immediate environment in order to understand the complexity of the relationships between man, nature and the territory. The educational challenge involves a better knowledge of the complexity of the issues as well as a positive personal experience and feeling with nature.

Jean Marchal , Lion's Club PO, Occitanie Sustainable Development Project Manager

“Good in Têt”, a citizen mobilization against pollution from the river to the sea

80% of marine waste has a land origin. It is estimated that between 8 and 12 million tonnes of plastic are released each year in the Mediterranean, 20% due to fishing activities and maritime traffic and 80% due to release by rivers.

Stéphane David , inventor of waste capture unit

Addressing the source of marine pollution by stopping waste upstream

Clean-up Rivers supports managers of rainwater networks in the fight against pollution of waterways by waste (plastics, cigarette butts, hydrocarbons, etc.). We set up capture units which allow the protection of rivers and by extension seas and oceans.
