The Living Med team is going through all the corners of the Mediterranean basin to make documentaries and photo reports that we want to present to the public. All this material shows the extraordinary biodiversity of this area of the planet, the threats it suffers, the efforts of conservation that are being carried out, as well as the most traditional and sustainable human activities with the environment.
ORIGIN OF CIVILIZATION
The Mediterranean basin is one of the regions with the greatest biodiversity on Earth, with thousands of species of fauna and flora, marine and terrestrial, endemic. In addition, it was in the Mediterranean Levante, the so-called ‘Growing fertile’ (currently in Turkey), where the Humanity settled for the first time 9,000 years ago. Agriculture and livestock emerged here and also the first cities. A meeting point between Africa, Asia and Europe that allowed for human development.
