Association “A l’écoute de l’Océan”

Aaleco is a French non-profit organisation that aims to conduct awareness campaigns and spread the word about the importance about marine conservation through educational campaigns in local schools. The project “A look at our oceans” aims to publicize the often overlooked work of the researchers and other actors who toil to protect our oceans and to answer questions regarding the conservation of marine mammals.

Adélie and Jérémy came to Andenes from the 16th to the 19th of December. We were able to show them our daily activities, and they were lucky enough to spot killer whales from the lighthouse. We participated in a video-conference with young kids from an elementary school and were interviewed for their “A look at our oceans” project. Additionally, we visited a stranded sperm whale on a beach near Andenes (Stave).
