Explore the new “Meet a Scientist” section of our Education Portal! Hear from marine scientists in a series of educational videos about what they do, and learn about rockstar scientists and the contributions they have made to the field. The associated worksheet shatters stereotypes of scientists and encourages students to envision themselves in a scientific career.

While our scientists were busy diving into data from our Global Reef Expedition, we made some major strides this past year in our Education and Outreach programs: we launched our award-winning Education Portal, helped UNESCO launch a report on Marine World Heritage on the High Seas, and completed "An Ocean Mystery: The Missing Catch," a film that follows renowned fisheries scientist Dr. Daniel Pauly (Sea Around Us, University of British Columbia) on his quest to quantify the true amount fish we have removed from our oceans.

Sign up for our newsletter to follow us throughout this new year as we premiere our film on the Smithsonian Channel, publish our findings from the Global Reef Expedition, and expand our Mangrove Education and Restoration programs in the Caribbean.
Happy New Year! This past year we kept our scientists busy analyzing data from our 5-year Global Reef Expedition, writing up scientific papers and final reports for publication. While our scientists were busy diving into Excel spreadsheets we made some major strides in Education and Outreach.

Do MPAs Really Work?
Survey says......YES!
"The benefits of establishing well-designed and enforced fully protected MPAs are well-documented. On average, fully protected areas can increase the total biomass of marine life by more than 400 percent."
The U.S. now leads the world in protected marine areas. But are they a scientifically sound strategy?

It's not looking good out there folks.
NASA expressed “greater than 95 percent certainty” in the conclusion.

We are SO CLOSE to completing our final report on the health of coral reef ecosystems in French Polynesia - stay tuned!
In the meantime, watch our Emmy Award winning film filmed on our Global Reef Expedition in French Polynesia "Sharks of the Coral Canyon," available to stream in HD on our website:
The film Sharks of the Coral Canyon (aka Mysteries of the Coral Canyon) tells the story of a team of scientists studying shark feeding behavior on the Global Reef Expedition

Low oxygen zones in the ocean are causing massive fish die-offs, yet another impact of climate change and marine pollution.
Now it is becoming clear that another, profound result of human activities is underway: lower oxygen levels in our oceans.

"Oceanographers are carving up the world’s seas like the last of the holiday turkey. A new 3D map sorts global water masses — from deep, frigid circumpolar waters to the oxygen-starved Black Sea — into 37 categories... its international team of developers hopes that the map will help conservationists, government officials and others to better understand the biogeography of the oceans and make decisions about which areas to preserve."

Introduction

The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is conducting the world’s largest coral reef survey through the Global Reef Expedition – a 6-year mission to study coral reef health around the world. The Expedition is providing scientists, governments, organizations, and local communities with maps, information, and science-based solutions they can use to protect and restore ocean health.

The Living Oceans Foundation is a non-profit environmental science organization and ocean research foundation based in the United States. We work to help preserve, protect, and restore the world’s oceans and aquatic research through scientific research, outreach, and education.
