Scientists estimate that more than 80 percent of the ocean has never been mapped, explored, or even seen by humans. We know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the bottom of the ocean. Pure Ocean helps remedy the situation: with their state-of-the-art technology, they are developing a 3D map of the Mediterranean seabed. With this information, we can better protect and restore the creatures and ecosystems that live below the water’s surface.
Pure Ocean’s main mission is to support innovative research projects contributing to the protection of fragile marine ecosystems and biodiversity. Beyond funding research projects, Pure Ocean organizes conferences and promotes races and sporting challenges to raise public awareness of the plight of our oceans.
