On 26 December 2022, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center Tehnopolis organized the ceremonial opening of the BioTourS Dolphin Center and educational, interactive exhibition within the BioTourS project in the premises of the Natural History Museum of Montenegro.
Through the aforementioned project, IEC Tehnopolis created the BioTourS Dolphin Center, within which an educational exhibition about cetaceans was presented in the premises of the Natural History Museum of Montenegro. In the future, it will be a focal point for various exhibitions and interactive presentations aimed at increasing awareness of biodiversity and cetacean conservation.
With the ceremonial opening of the BioTourS Dolphin Center and the educational, interactive exhibition, visitors will be given the opportunity through various activities to learn more about the characteristics of cetaceans and their habitats, with special attention to species that occur in the Adriatic Sea. Also, a Center of this kind will in the future be a place for tourist activities related to the preservation of cetaceans in the Adriatic basin.
The opening of the BioTourS Dolphin Center is an activity within the BioTours project whose goal is to introduce best practices in sustainable tourism, preserve the natural heritage of the Adriatic Sea and involve young people in cross-border tourism activities that will raise awareness of whale conservation. Partners in the project are Ionian Dolphin Conservation (ITA), the National Tourist Agency of Albania and the Municipality of Termoli (ITA).
The BioTourS project is financed through the Interreg IPA CBC Italy-Albania-Montenegro Programme.
