The Posidonia Oceanica meadows offer food and shelter to a variety of plant and animal species.
The Posidonia Oceanic meadows clean sea water.
They generate oxygen, not only in water but also in the air.
In addition, they play a fundamental role in maintaining the coast and the stability of the sand beaches and sea beds.
The Posidonia Oceanica is threatened by pollution, destructive fishing, maritime traffic, the destruction of the coast and the creation of artificial beaches.
UNESCO has declared them a World Heritage Site.
