Celebrating the International Year of Biodiversity, Athens International Airport teamed up with the ΜΕDASSET (Mediterranean Association to Save the Sea Turtles) and hosted the photographic exhibition titled “Travelling with Sea Turtles in the Mediterranean”. The exhibition took visitors on a deep-sea tour of the amazing biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea, the protection of which is MEDASSET’s main objective. In the 30 photographs on display, visitors enjoyed the Mediterranean flora and fauna and learned about the imminent dangers they face: climate change, invasive species, pollution, over-fishing, ecosystem destruction. Marine scientist and underwater photographer, Yiannis Issaris, as well as other known photographers from around the world, guided us through an exploration of the rich seabed and its inhabitants.
