Research and exploration
“Ocean Blindness” is the inability to easily see and comprehend the size of the challenges facing our oceans today. The vastness and inaccessibility of much of our ocean landscape contributes to our lack of data and our inability to visualize changes and threats, or to quantify our impact on the oceans. This inhibits our ability to address these massive challenges of ocean conservation.
By understanding and quantifying the problems more effectively, we can better direct resources to the areas that need it the most. By connecting previously disconnected data sources, we can attain an understanding of our oceans at a scale that was previously out of our reach, to help protect what is most vulnerable.
