Our next Marine Protected Area to explore is the of Port-Cros and Porqueroles in France. Port-Cros National Parc is the oldest European MPA (created in 1963). It covers 700 ha of land and 1288 of sea.

Beautiful lanscape around Porqueroles

This is the Underwater world of Port-Cros. We can see some Posidonia, a marine plant that you can only find in the Mediterranean

This is Caulerpa, again this invasive species invading the natural habitat…
