Our roots are in science and journalism. To understand the world better and to inform as many people as possible about the ocean.
We are a not-for-profit research foundation, a registered charity. We work with the University of Oxford and a wide range of partners to accelerate the scientific exploration and protection of the ocean. In line with the 30x30 target, we aim to highly protect at least 30% of the ocean by 2030.
