Our mission is only made possible by philanthropic, government and commercial fleets joining forces with subsea technology operators and manufacturers .
All expeditions that discover ocean life are invited to join the Alliance and contribute to the global effort.
We fund and undertake expeditions each year with partners and can also contribute taxonomists, technology and storytellers to partner expeditions.
We are also developing an Ocean Census Toolkit, a mobile and adaptable laboratory, including equipment and technologies to capture, digitise and preserve ocean life and their DNA which we will make available to expedition partners.
As the programme develops, Ocean Census will look to support partnerships to develop a range of technologies for imaging and sequencing species in situ and innovating storytelling.
