A marine protected area for the preservation of biodiversity
The Pelagos sanctuary is the largest marine protected area in the Mediterranean (87,500 km2). Resulting from an international agreement between France, Italy and the Principality of Monaco, it was signed in Rome on November 25, 1999.
Its objective is to protect marine mammals and the species that live there against all causes of disturbance from human activities.
There, the different habitats of the Mediterranean are represented: from the shallow coastal depths to the open sea, passing through the abysses and the deep underwater canyons allowing the upwelling of cold waters with planktonic production.
