The Tara Ocean Foundation is a unique TIMEZERO Ambassador! Mainly composed of scientists, the crew’s mission is to study the marine microbiome of our oceans. Each litre of seawater contains hundreds of billions of organisms: phytoplankton, protists, bacteria, and viruses. All this biodiversity interacts in an ecosystem that researchers want to understand, measure, quantify, identify, and evaluate.
Because of climate change, we are facing new challenges. Understanding our oceans’ microbiomes is a priority to define our future actions. Tara Ocean Foundation is also a nomadic educational mission that raises awareness about the preservation and the respect of our oceans.
