UNESCO and Deyrolle are pleased to present this exhibition to celebrating the splendor of the ocean and water, on the occasion of World Océans Day 2014, celebrated Under the theme: Together we have the power to protect the ocean.
This exhibition aims at reminding us that the ocean shelters a rich and fragile biodiversity, that complex environments develop around it, and above all that human survival depends on maintaining these ecological balances and functions.

After presenting the stakes, the educational charts will make you discover a fragile ecosystem, the Mediterranean, and move on to presenting the diversity of species depending on the ocean. Finally, the exhibition recalls the dependence of humans on both salted and fresh water.
