Today is World Ocean Day. A day when we are encouraged to think more deeply about our seas, oceans and the creatures and habitats that reside under the waves. Really, a single day isn’t nearly enough; we should be thinking about our impact on our oceans a lot more than that.

Luckily, there are teams of dedicated scientists doing just that. At Sparkgeo we have been lucky enough to work with one such team. Today, the Wildlife Conservation Society in collaboration with the World Wildlife Foundation launched MERMAID, a Marine Ecological Research Management AID. Together we have built a platform to support the capture of marine data in remote maritime environments.

 

 
We’ve been lucky enough to work with the amazing WCS team for the last four years on a variety of impactful environmental projects.
