A unique expedition

Phœnix Expedition is the first sailing expedition for the regeneration of the ocean.  

We will meet, document and help those who are actively restoring marine ecosystems, from France to California. 

Regenerating the ocean A priority for

Slowing down & mitigating the climate crisis

Marine ecosystems are huge carbon sinks, produce oxygen and protect coastal communities from storms and erosion. Regenerating marine ecosystems ensures the ocean's capacity to regulate the climate and thus will help us to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Alleviating the collapse of biodiversity

Marine ecosystems are hotspots of marine biodiversity. Marine species use these areas to seek refuge, to reproduce, to forage etc. By enabling the regeneration of these habitats, we can help life in the ocean to recover.

Although marine ecosystems are disappearing all over the world, we still have the time and capacity to regenerate them.

Our mission: accelerating the regeneration of the ocean

Our expedition wants to be useful

We want to help and accelerate concrete solutions that are found in the ocean and that can help us to take real action to face the ecological emergency.  

The objectives of Phœnix Expédition are to: 

We will meet 6 marine ecosystem restoration projects between France and California. The objective is to discuss with those who are behind these regenerative initiatives in order to better understand and share their actions.

We will share ocean regeneration solutions with as many people as possible through our blog, our social networks and our web-series. Each project we meet will have a dedicated episode where you can virtually embark with us to discover them. 

With the support of our partners and thanks to the contributors to our crowdfunding campaign, we will provide them with direct support for their communication, development, funding and field work
