21 march: International Day of Forests

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests. The B-CHARMED project wanted to celebrate this day, creating a short clip about the underwater black coral forests of Puerto del Carmen, in the southeastern coast of Lanzarote. The images were taken by italian photojournalist Roberto Rinaldi during the first  fieldwork campaign of the project.
