Expédition 7e Continent
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH: onboard expeditions designed and implemented by scientists from the French National Research Center (CNRS), with heavy research equipment to collect and analyse samples of micro and nano plastics in the deep sea and above the surface (Atlantic oceanic gyres, Mediterranean Sea, etc.).
EDUCATION-INFORMATION: ensuring that all generations understand plastic pollution, how critical its level is in the ocean and how it can be reduced. Each year, in more than a dozen ports, our educational tours will allow public audiences to discover our flagship schooner, participate in scientific experiments and attend educational conferences.
