Would you like to discover biodiversity underwater? Register for the BioMARató! It is a friendly competition with other cities on the Catalan coastline.
BioMARató’s promotional banner.

It begins in April with the City Nature Challenge (CNC), an international friendly competition of naturalistic observations where cities worldwide will compete with each other and continue throughout Catalonia throughout the summer. In Catalonia, the provinces of Barcelona, ​​Girona, and Tarragona will participate with the BioMARató. The region that gets the most underwater observations, detects more invasive and rare species or gets the most participants will win.
