Choose a Focus area for your Bequest
Australia is uniquely surrounded by four Ocean basins, each impacted by a major fluctuating climate oscillation, which together control all life on our island. Through our planned Ocean Literacy program, we hope that Australia’s millions of students will better understand the crucial role of a healthy Ocean in protecting their futures.
Jacques Cousteau was the first to introduce the Ocean worldwide in a long running TV underwater series, ending in 1977 with no replacement. Our proposed multi-media series filmed aboard Oceanic research vessels will capture the excitement. We plan to publish books and resource materials to help everyone better understand the Ocean.
Oceanic Discovery Science with zero emission operations are planned to use fully sustainable wooden sailing vessels fitted with the latest scientific equipment. Partnering with the UN Decade of Ocean Science, our scientists have drafted more than a decade’s worth of research projects that we hope can begin once the Covid pandemic finally ends.
