EXPLORATION • RESTORATION • EDUCATION

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

  • 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.

Future Expeditions

British Virgin Islands 2019

In 2019, the Aquatica Foundation is planning to venture to the British Virgin Islands to explore their stunning reefs. The main goal will be to observe and document the effects and recovery of the marine environment following the Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017.

Chuuk Lagoon
2020

In 2020, the Aquatica Foundation will lead an Expedition to the azure waters of the South Pacific, where the remains of the World War II Japanese “Ghost Fleet” continue to fascinate explorers. A goal of this effort will be to observe and measure the potential effect that oil trapped in the sunken hulls may pose if it leaks into the marine environment.
