Our Vision

Stacks Image 259
We will build a network of collaborators such as Dive Centers, charter fleets, fishing communities and all other water sports enthusiasts all working together towards better health and sustainable development of our oceans

Increase seagrass distribution across the Mediterranean and make sure that in all those places that were previously covered with meadows we plant them again to reconstruct a natural key habitat for the eco systems!
Stacks Image 263
Find working long term solutions for Marine debris and get all watersports communities to come together and collect Marine debris while we provide the necessary knowledge and structure to make sure the collected plastic doesn't just get dumped but reused in a variety of creative ways giving back a resource to the communities

Come for an Expedition

Stacks Image 186
During our voyage through the Mediterranean Sea we do offer the option to join us on board and participate in the research efforts underway.
You have the option of joining us for the trip and staying on board or - if preferred join us in a workshop in a set location and stay in the comfort of a house on solid ground while learning the skills of marine science in the workshops during the daytime!
The exact dates will come clear by the end of January but we will offer those workshops on board as well as on shore throughout the trip from the Aegean Sea all the way up the northern Adriatic.
