What is Pelorus Foundation?
Our mission is to champion innovation and act as a catalyst, empowering individuals and local communities to preserve and protect the world’s wildlife and wild places for future generations.
Together with CORDIO, we planned work on pioneering a new Sea Check system to examine the ocean’s health, observe pelagic species and monitor human intervention on the biosphere. No project of this scope had ever been attempted in the region, particularly Eritrea, a country yet to be surveyed by a conservation group.
The practices created, tools used and data gathered will be the first in over a decade, becoming the foundation of an extensive ocean health monitoring system which is fundamental towards sustaining and conserving vital marine ecosystems. This project is currently on hold due to instability in the region.
This ground-breaking concept would not have been established without the partnership between CORDIO, Seas4Life and Pelorus Foundation.
