Calling all superyacht owners and crew! Critical ocean research needs your help
by Richard Madden
One of the greatest challenges for marine scientists is gaining access to the sea. The deep ocean (below 200 metres) is our largest and most vital ecosystem and yet we don’t fully understand how it functions or how healthy it is. Which is why BOAT International and the Ocean Family Foundation, in association with Nekton, have taken on the task of helping scientists find out.
As part of our annual Ocean Talks event, held this year on 12 June, we want to connect superyachts with marine scientists who need access to the ocean to conduct research. And we need your help.
Over the following pages, we pinpoint four key projects that require vessel time between now and summer 2020. If you own a yacht, work on a yacht or know decision-makers who can help get scientists on board on a yacht, then please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your sea needs you!
