Longitude 181 Nature is an association created in 2002 by François Sarano and Vincent Ohl. It carries out various initiatives for the protection of underwater flora and fauna. The association is behind the creation of the Responsible Diver Charter, which has been adopted by many diving federations across the world: FFESSM, CMAS Québec, etc. In 2012, Longitude 181 created the first international guide to eco-responsible diving centres, that lists many diving clubs.

The association offers you its "Sea Fiches", submerged laminated cards explaining the underwater flora and fauna, to discover all that the Mediterranean has in store for you!

"SEA FICHES" FOR EXPLORATION

In the form of laminated cards, these files can be taken under water and kept in one of your BCD pockets. Thus, you'll be able to discover the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean and recognise all of the different species that you encounter!

I'm a retail assistant at Decathlon in Marseille and passionate about snorkeling. I also have my PADI Open Water certification. As an active member of the Longitude 181 Nature association, I'm delighted to contribute to this association's efforts to protect our oceans and their flora and fauna. If at my level I can help change things, raise the awareness of even a single person, I think that it's worth the trouble, and Longitude 181 is an association of enthusiasts, which is what I like!
