In partnership with Schmidt Ocean Institute, UNEP-WCMC, the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS), and Challenger 150, join us for this on-site Satellite Event at the UN Ocean Decade conference in Barcelona, which runs from 10-12 April 2024.

This session will provide an introduction to the programme and an important discussion on ocean life data, exploring how best to advance the accessibility and use of data by scientists and decision-makers. We invite you to take this opportunity to share your views and ask our expert panelists.

Ocean Census is a pioneering new programme to accelerate the discovery of ocean life. Established as an open network of partners uniting efforts to address this global challenge, Ocean Census builds on the legacies of programmes including The Census of Marine Life. We are continuing to invite partners to join our Alliance and be part of our journey to support ocean species discovery.
