Our Mission

We constantly monitor the marine environment, to protect and safeguard it

Menkab collaborates with Italian and foreign public bodies and universities to support scientific research and offers skills and logistical support for monitoring at sea.

For the creation of multimedia content Menkab makes use of the collaboration with the audiovisual production company Artescienza s.a.s. , thanks to which HD video content is produced for documentary purposes.

I progetti di Menkab sono portati avanti da un team eterogeneo e diversificato: biologi marini, divulgatori ambientali, ricercatori e fotografi.
