From Curiosity to Understanding  to  Solutions

Organisation’s objectives (if different from the Mission):

REV Ocean is a game-changing initiative that has an ambitious yet simple goal – to ensure ‘One Healthy Ocean’. The ocean is a dynamic, interconnected global ecosystem that can recover if the negative pressures currently affecting the oceans are dealt with effectively. To do that, we need to improve our understanding of the ocean, get key stakeholders – decision-makers, researchers, business and civil society – aligned with that understanding and turn that knowledge into concrete solutions. REV Ocean's 182-meter state of the art research vessel will be a core component of our work.

We have a focused strategy addressing ocean challenges in 3 core areas:
- Plastic pollution
- Climate change and ocean acidification
- Overfishing and environmental impacts of fishing
