National Geographic Early Career Explorers supported by Sky Ocean Rescue

Sky Ocean Rescue is partnering with National Geographic, an organization with a long-standing commitment to ocean protection, to fund explorers who are passionate about protecting our oceans. Each year, National Geographic gives more than 450 grants to scientists, educators, and storytellers around the world. Chosen from the Austria, Germany, Italy, the Republic of Ireland and the UK, the recipients of the Sky Ocean Rescue National Geographic grants will work on a project that will benefit marine environments in and around Europe.

Projects should aim to advance our knowledge of the ocean and the challenges it currently faces (e.g., climate change, coastal development, pollution, threats to biodiversity, microplastics, unsustainable fishing practices); develop technology to advance ocean exploration or protection; or effect changes in policy or behaviour, including through community-based projects that will protect the future of the ocean. Preference will be given to projects focused on the North Sea, North Atlantic, and Mediterranean. Successful applicants will receive a grant (up to US $10,000) and will have the chance to be selected to receive additional support and exposure through the Sky Ocean Rescue project.

 

The deadline for this call is the 1st January, 2018. For more information visit here
