EYOS and OCEEF – two of the world’s leaders in ocean exploration – have joined forces to push the boundaries of underwater conservation and analysis and embark on crucial citizen science missions to the farthest reaches of the planet. And if in case you have a cool US$150,000 at hand, you possibly can be part of them.
EYOS, the authority in non-public superyacht expeditions, has partnered with Ocean Conservation Exploration and Schooling Basis (OCEEF), a 501(c)(3) group, to teach the world concerning the ocean by immersive, data-collecting missions aboard OCEEF’s five-star analysis yacht, RV Odyssey.
The superior vessel will circumnavigate the world with missions in Antarctica, the Chagos Archipelago, the Galapagos and different distant locations, the place they are going to discover aquatic ecosystems teeming with biodiversity alongside high scientists, explorers, college students, and educators.
Dedicated to analysis
Dedicated to area analysis and scientific inquiry, EYOS and OCEEF share a mission to leverage exploration as a means of driving better consciousness concerning the Earth’s oceans. EYOS Founding Associate Rob McCallum mentioned: “Working with OCEEF on this means is a pure complement to EYOS’ previous few years main and managing the 5 Deeps and Ring of Fireplace expeditions that dove the Challenger Deep and beforehand unseen deepsea environments.
“Odyssey represents the new frontier of expedition travel, mixing cutting edge science, with adventure travel and expedition cruising. The opportunity and potential for further discovery with this vessel’s program is immense, and it will be tremendously exciting for all those fortunate enough to be onboard.”
On the unique missions aboard the RV Odyssey, EYOS will present logistical help and expedition management, empowering friends to totally participate on this most modern alternative in superyacht journey.
Alex Moukas, Founding father of OCEEF, commented: “We are very excited to be partnering with EYOS in such a meaningful way. OCEEF’s goal is to provide world-class scientists free access to the vessel and help them design impactful missions. EYOS can help match the scientists and locations with Ocean and Expedition enthusiasts that make these incredible missions possible. We are looking forward to continuing to bring passionate citizen scientists unmatched experiences on and below the world’s oceans.”
Over the subsequent yr, the RV Odyssey will embark on a collection of first-of-its-kind missions, providing an unique 360-degree journey that may assist drive schooling and a greater understanding of our oceans. These immersive adventures embody finding out mesophotic coral reef ecosystems within the Chagos Archipelago, looking for the killer whales that assault nice white sharks off the coast of Cape City, documenting hydrothermal vents on Antarctica’s Deception Island, taking part in threatened species restoration research within the Galapagos, and journeying across the Mediterranean – from Sardinia and Sicily to Crete and Santorini – and uncover historical Roman and Greek triremes (triple-decker warships).
OCEEF invitations travellers to help its missions in Antarctica this winter season by travelling aboard RV Odyssey for the most-exclusive expertise doable – a first-hand have a look at the very analysis contributors are serving to help. With a tax-deductible donation of US$150,000, donors and their buddies or members of the family may be invited onboard the RV Odyssey and be part of the crew of scientists, expedition leaders, and college students to expertise life onboard.
