Explore sea and coasts
Our research trips resemble expeditions that are accompanied by Citizen Scientists as passengers.
We encourage exploration of the sea and coasts, as well as the experiencing of weather and space.
Among the fields in which we encourage research include:
- Polar research
- Fisheries science
- Sustainable fishing
- Marine biology
- Marine archaeology
- Coastal protection
- Sustainable, environmentally benign tourism
We are committed to fulfilling our global responsibility to protect natural assets. Unspoiled nature is the bedrock of life for all of us. The focus for our Citizen Science research activities is the preservation of biodiversity. We are currently experiencing a deeply concerning and threatening loss of biodiversity that has the potential to severely impair the functioning of entire ecosystems.
Scientists are currently observing a rapid loss of species worldwide. According to the World Biodiversity Council IPBES, species extinction is currently proceeding 10-100 times more rapidly than has been the average for the last 10 million years. According to the IPBES, a million animal and plant species are currently threatened with extinction.
Our modern society has altered 75% of the world's land area from its original state and industrialized 66% of the sea area. We are playing our part in a global action plan that will protect vast tracts of land and 33% of the oceans.
