Sudan and Eritrea
Positioning marine scientists on Pelorus yacht expeditions presents a unique system for the collection of vital data on our oceans’ health. What is more, this system would not be complete without your participation. You don’t need to be scientist, you simply need an appetite for adventure and discovery.
With just one similar project in existence in California, this research programme will be one-of-its-kind as Eritrea and Sudan’s southern atolls have never been surveyed or checked by a conservation group. For those who join the scientists on board, you will reap the extraordinary feeling of unearthing an unknown territory.
The paramount motivation for researching this destination stems back to how little we know. The purpose of the Sea Check system is to provide information on the health of the sea and all that it encompasses. From coral reefs to fish, seagrass to anthropogenic impacts, the system aims to take a broad look at the condition of this essential ecosystem. Once collected, the coastal data will be fed back to CORDIO and Seas4Life for analytics, and further shared to increase global and local awareness. For hands-on conservation, expanding your marine knowledge, and actively exploring our underwater world, this fascinating expedition provides all.
