In The News & Upcoming Live-event/ Past Events

By holding educational presentations about the Galapagos Whale Shark research project, the ecosystem in the Galapagos, oceans, marine wildlife and citizen science, we create more knowledge and understanding for divers and non-divers alike. We think that if you understand a species better, you can protect it. We believe that if we educate people, they will be inspired to protect our oceans and we will have more ambassadors who can create a better future for marine wildlife and their habitat.


During our live-events we share about the research project in detail and highlight some Citizen Science program you can support together with us. Every live-event also offer the opportunity to meet us in person and ask us any question you might have. Check back often as new live-events will be added as they are schedule.
