Set sail with Tara this summer!

The schooner set sail from her home port, Lorient, at the end of April on her tenth Mediterranean expedition for a summer full of stopovers.

Following visits to Sardinia and Albania at the start of July, she is now in Greek waters and will sail on to Lebanon on 5th August and to Israel and Tunisia at the start of September.

The Veolia Foundation is committed to protecting the environment and waste management and thus supports this expedition which focuses on assessing the effect of plastic on the marine ecosystem. Relive Tara’s first summer experiences in images.

The Veolia Foundation is a partner of Tara’s tenth expedition in the Mediterranean. The sea is home to almost 8% of sea life but pollution related to coastal towns, industrial activities and marine traffic is posing a threat to their habitat.
