Co-designed by international experts, alongside traditional taxonomy methods, our method deploys the revolutionary potential of cyber-taxonomy. By employing cutting-edge technologies including DNA sequencing, high-resolution digital imaging, and machine learning, we’re working to fulfill our ambitious global target to discover 100,000 new ocean species over the next decade.
And we’re partnering with innovators who are developing technologies that enable us to explore deep waters and conduct cutting edge science.
The digitisation of specimen data and the creation of a system for data distribution will help to support more equitable access to biodiversity knowledge, galvanising efforts worldwide.
We have strength in numbers, so a vital part of our mission is to support a community of experts in the science of species discovery from around the world through the Ocean Census Science Network.
