Tara Ocean Foundation (FTO)
With the ongoing melting of the Arctic ice pack, there is an urgent need for action.
The Tara Ocean Foundation – first foundation in France dedicated to the Ocean to be recognized of public utility – will return to the North Pole with a new concept of a floating polar station to pursue long-term scientific research and monitoring in the Central Arctic Ocean. Similar to the International Space Station (ISS), the Tara International Polar Station (TIPS) will become an inhabited station with the aim of conducting drift expeditions starting from 2024 to study and highlight the effects and consequences of climate change on this specific Arctic region and on the global ocean.
Start Date: 01/01/2020
End Date: 31/12/2030
