From the estuary to the quays, the research schooner Tara has sailed up the Seine, passing through its locks and is currently doing an exceptional stopover in Paris until July 19th 2020. This is an opportunity for the Tara Ocean Foundation to share our research with the general public and students of the Paris area. Come and discover 16 years of research and exploration of the Ocean and embark on a guided tour! On deck, we invite you to travel, dream and discover the major issues linked to the Ocean and its preservation. Biodiversity, climate, food, oxygen… The future of humanity depends on the Ocean.
An event intended to awaken wonder and promote commitment
The research schooner Tara, representing the Tara Ocean Foundation, is currently docked in Paris. Through guided tours of the legendary boat, we invite you to travel, dream and discover. On the eve of the 2020, what if we take a fresh look at our relationship with the Ocean and marine biodiversity?
