The Aquatica Foundation has been established to promote and support three key Ocean initiatives:

  • Exploration
  • Restoration
  • Education

exploration

Exploration

90% of the world’s oceans are unexplored and without scientific baseline data. This presents a vast opportunity to grow the body of knowledge in this undiscovered realm.

restoration

Restoration

Many of the world’s ocean-related ecosystems are degraded or are at the risk of collapse. Working to restore these critical environments is core to ensuring an enduring, viable ocean environment and planet.

education

Education

70% of the Earth’s surface is the ocean. However, humankind’s understanding of its functions and structure represents the “tip-of-the-iceberg” at best. This knowledge needs to grow dramatically.


There is much to learn and communicate about the Ocean, and the Aquatica Foundation is preparing to play a significant role in growing the pace of humankind’s expanded knowledge of our blue planet’s unseen frontier.

The Aquatica Foundation is assembling a group of global leaders to provide insight and guidance as we plan where and how we will create positive impacts for our world’s ocean environment.

Partners and Supporting Organizations

The Aquatica Foundation has been established with a primary mission of promoting and supporting ocean exploration, restoration, and education. The Foundation’s focus will be international and establishing partnerships with a number of respected and committed ocean science organizations around the world, having an aligned ocean focus, will be essential. The nature of the partnerships reflects varied missions and interests, that range from marine archeology, to pure discovery, to advancing marine science, whether geological, biological, or societal in nature. Exploring and restoring the world’s endowment of ocean treasures, sharing findings with the scientific community, and engaging and educating the public, are commitments that will propel the Foundation into the future.
