Marine Research Expeditions

We're carrying out scientific research at sea as well as providing talks at conferences, universities and much more, to achieve a better understanding of our oceans.

Our Vision


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 ecosystems!

We are building 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.


Find working long term solutions for plastic pollution.

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.

Citizen Science Projects

We need people who are passionate about the underwater life of the Mediterranean. We do create an invasive species map and seagrass map to detect how far invasive species in the Mediterranean spread and where the seagrass meadows are disappearing. Submit your sightings now!
