Alitan: the little Mediterranean shark

On the occasion of the recent launch of the informative comic "El Gatvaire, una historia gens espinosa" we want to share with the public the project "Petits taurons-Acció Stellaris", by means of an informative talk you can find out what it consists of, the objectives and the actions carried out to improve the state of conservation of a small shark that perhaps you didn't know about.

The youngest children will be able to participate in the children's activity: Storytelling of the comic "El gatvaire, una história gens espinosa". A little story about the "petits taurons" project from the point of view of an alligator shark.
