Spring 2021: commitment and action at Pure Ocean

 

The ocean represents 70% of the planet. Thanks to photosynthesis, it releases 50% of the oxygen we breathe into the atmosphere – every other breath we take! More than ever, the Ocean is vital to us. Our health depends on the Ocean’s health. Thanks to our donors, our ambassadors and the events that allow us to educate the public, we raise funds to support ocean research. Together, let’s act up for Ocean protection!

PURE OCEAN SCIENTIFIC PROJECT 2021

Pure Ocean’s mission is to support scientific research for ocean protection. Our scientific committee, chaired by Françoise Gaill, has studied hundreds of applications from all over the world and selected innovative ocean research programs, responding to major current and future environmental challenges. Below is a summary of the first of the 4 projects that have been selected for funding in 2021. 

MicroPOW: Building a complete understanding of how microplastics affect the physiology of wildlife

Microplastics (< 5 mm) are a real scourge for both terrestrial and marine wildlife. These tiny fragments penetrate organs, accumulate in tissues and can even enter cells. By adopting a unique transdisciplinary approach, the MicroPOW project studies the biological consequences of microplastic exposure, from the cellular level to the whole organism. Shearwaters of Lord Howe Island (Australia) will be examined as model-species and compared according to their level of microplastic ingestion, with results applicable to humans.

PURE OCEAN IN MARINE & OCEANS
As part of a privileged partnership, 
the magazine ' Marine & Océans ' has opened
its pages to us..


In the latest edition, our scientific coordinator,
Atlantine Boggio Pasqua, talks about the issues
that link innovation and the Ocean.


She presents the scientific research projects that we support.
SAVE THE DATE: PURE OCEAN CUP FOR BIODIVERSITY !

During the IUCN World Conservation Congress, which will take place in Marseille from September 3rd to 11th 2021, we are organizing a unique regatta for marine biodiversity protection.

The Pure Ocean Cup is 20 crews who will sail with one objective: to raise funds for oceanic scientific research.

To participate in this unique race, contact Clément at mission@pure-ocean.org
