Tara mooring at Bygdøynes
Since 2003, the schooner Tara has been sailing the world’s oceans to study and understand coastal and marine ecosystems and how they are impacted by climate change. The Tara Ocean Foundation (first French foundation devoted to the Ocean to be recognized as a public interest group) created a revolution in scientific research with a unique and innovative approach that will help us predict, anticipate and better manage climate risks. The Foundation also shares its scientific expertise to raise awareness and educate young people, mobilize policymakers at the highest level and encourage southern countries to use the latest knowledge about the Ocean. A true floating laboratory, the schooner Tara has already traveled more than 375,000 kilometers, making stopovers in more than 60 countries over the course of 4 major expeditions conducted in collaboration with international research institutes of excellence — the CNRS, CEA, PSL, EMBL, MIT, NASA, etc.
