By funding the Tara Ocean Foundation, the Water Lovers program supports the research to understand how to minimize the product impact on the ocean waters and helps to raise awareness on environmental issue.
This non-profit organization collaborates with scientific institutions to study the impact of climate and ecological change on the ocean. Tara Ocean Foundation sails a 36-meter aluminum schooner called Tara to travel the world and collect ocean data. The boat has completed 11 expeditions, providing scientists with the information they need to predict and anticipate the impact of climate change.
In 2020, the expedition will be “South Atlantic mission”. (to be launched in October 2020, still dedicated on micro plastic issue and plankton analysis – upstream the rivers in Brazil, Chili, Argentina, South Africa, Senegal.)
