Exploration is at the root of every scientific discovery. It is also the means by which knowledge is accessed and passed on. Our explorations are the subject of photographic productions, documentary films, interviews, exhibitions and a communications program designed to pass on our knowledge of the ocean to as many people as possible. We also initiate new scientific explorations.

From the secrets of the deep to the wonders of marine life, the 1 OCEAN Foundation takes you on a 10-year journey to discover the ocean. Discover our missions:
