We are one Blue Planet.
Our team works with partners globally to develop marine solutions to accelerate the transition from data to decisions to protect our oceans.

What we believe in

Oceans and coral reefs are the backbone of a multitude of ecosystems and for human livelihood.

World ecosystem illustration.

Unfortunately, we have already lost or severely damaged more than 50% of coral reefs and 85% of oyster beds worldwide. Studies estimate nearly all reefs will be at risk by 2050 unless action is taken now to reduce the threats. These alarming projections are increasingly becoming a major challenge in many parts of the world.

We aim to change that.

The ABC's of Reef Support

Aquaculture and Fisheries

Fine-tuning feeding regimes is crucial because stocks fed too little lose valuable weight, while over-feeding wastes resources and pollutes the local environment. The skill of gauging when and how much to feed takes years to develop. To gain knowledge and experience, farmers remain onsite every day (weekends and holidays included) for months – spending more time at work than with their families. And not every farmhand is a fish-feeding expert. But what if human skills and knowledge could be passed on to monitoring software? Our AI and GIS models allows us will deliver a robust decision-making tool for precision aquaculture.

Beaches & Coastlines

Each year, billions of pounds of trash and other pollutants enter the ocean. Some of the debris ends up on our beaches, washed in with the waves and tides. Waste then sink, eaten by animals that mistake it for food or accumulate in ocean gyres. Despite the economic benefits of tourism, beach managers have grown increasingly resistant to continued resort development due to lack of clear predictive insights and planning strategies. We brings informative insights to better manage coastal and land-based pollution for healthier beaches and coastlines.

Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are exceptionally valuable; they provide food, livelihoods and economic opportunity to more than half a billion people in over 100 countries; they are also teeming with life, hosting a quarter of all known marine species. Nearly 200 million people depend on coral reefs to protect them from storm surges and waves. Increased acidification, pollution, fishing and other forms of coastal activities all impact our fuure of our coral reefs.
