The Mediterranean as you’ve never seen it before

//14/04/29
Throughout 2014 CosmoCaixa Barcelona will be presenting a fascinating exhibition about our relationship with the Mediterranean Sea and the effects of overpopulation along its coastline. Get ready to explore the Mediterranean as you’ve never seen it before. You’ll be able to go inside a shoal of tuna fish, observe with your own eyes the salt crisis, and discover the real dangers which are threatening the future of the Mediterranean.

Visitors to the exhibition will gain a scientific understanding of the Mediterranean Sea and learn about its rich biodiversity and culture. Vistors will also see the research findings in sustainability.

Running until December 2014, you’ll have all year to plan a visit. Find out about the exhibition here on the CosmoCaixa web site.
