Open Ocean

So far we’ve joined youth host Sergio and lead scientist Dr. Boris Worm ...

... as they head out on our first open ocean adventure: Cocos, an island in the Eastern Tropical Pacific. It’s a hotspot of activity for marine life, making it the ideal location to study the migration patterns of sharks. With Migra Mar scientists and Conservation International, we’re trying find out:  How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?

How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?

Join youth host Sergio and lead scientist Dr. Boris Worm as they head out on our first open ocean adventure: Cocos, an island in the Eastern Tropical Pacific. Scalloped hammerhead sharks have been decimated in this region. These hammerheads are easy targets for fishers because they often come together in large schools. Although the islands in the region are all protected, the waters between these islands are not.  With Migra Mar scientists and Conservation International, we’re investigating critical habitats and pathways to find out: How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?

Coming Winter 2019.

We’re not done!  

Ocean School wants to continue to digitally transport youth from around the world into the Open Ocean.  To make it happen, we need partners and funders.
