SEEP (Social Education & Environment Protection) in collaboration with Naturalist Club students,Fishermen Association Narte, Axhushi fotostudio, Vlora Youth Center, the Regional Directorate of National Culture, Association Narta, Ppne Vlore, ShellGallery Vlora, inhabitants, realized informational activities for large lagoon values.
They discussed about the event that belongs to the wetlands day February 2, 1972, when the Convention was signed in Ramsar city, and about natural values of the lagoon, very rich biodiversity, especially its wintering water birds, the importance of its daily food to inhabitants.
They talked about archaeological and cultural heritage of lagoon, kinds of fish and fishing seasons.
All students agreed to propose to Ramsar Convention Secretariat for the Narta Lagoon to win this status since it fulfills many criteria such as the large number of birds and other natural and eco-tourism values that should be protected and developed.
Fishermen promised us that in the next event in 2017, they will boat trip us with their fishing boats and will show us how they fish with their nets and will cook in natural and traditional condition
