Islet clean ups
This month the Nature park rangers got their hands dirty cleaning up islets and islands around Lastovo. Nature Park Lastovo Islands is still looking at ways to reduce plastic pollution through various recycling initiatives.
FestivalThe Island got festive with the ‘Lastovo in the stars’ festival that took place over 22 June – 25 June. This event welcomed all people to camp out in the islands tranquility and enjoy the sights. There were a number of DJs playing throughout the three days, as well as workshops. Workshops included a talk by Greenpeace Hrvatska on the problems of single use plastics and a beach clean up on Mrčara island with Greenpeace Hrvatska and Lastovo Islands Nature Park.
