Diversamente Mare

A project of velcro and cetacean sighting with people with disabilities.
The sea is seen not as an end but as a means to embark on a introspective journey into the soul.
A journey to undo the distances between normality and diversity, to overcome the fear of not knowing.
Since 2007, Marine Life Conservation has been working with various associations in the field of physical, psychological and social disadvantages, proposing the project “Diversamente Mare”, which combines velcro therapy with off-shore therapy. This experience is a good rehabilitation activity that can support classical psychological / pharmacological therapies.

Since May 2012 with the active participation of Rebaudengo University in Turin and Cattolica of Milan, a technical-scientific collaboration has started to identify a proper rehabilitation methodology for the various disabilities encountered. The study is unique in its kind and the first in Italy.

The main objective of the project is to restore dignity to the human being degraded by physical and mental illness or from a drug or alcohol history, offering it another possibility with the help of two great allies: the sea and its most fascinating inhabitants , Dolphins.
